Evaluation of Routing Protocols in MANETs With Varying Network Scope
Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) consist of mobile wireless nodes connected in such a manner so that the communication between nodes is carried out without any centralized control. MANETs are self-organized and self-configurable network where mobile nodes move arbitrarily. Routing is a crucial issue in MANETs. Therefore, emphasis in this paper is to evaluate the performance of three routing protocols DSDV, DSR and AODV for Constatnt Bit Rate (CBR) traffic by varying network scope i.e. number of participating nodes. The parameters used for evaluation are Packet Delivery Ratio (PDR), end to end Delay (Delay), routing overhead and throughput. The simulations are carried out using Network Simulator NS2.
