Impact of High Density and High Speed on AODV and DSR Routing Protocols
Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANET) allow versatile communication between hosts that are moving around. Routing of packets in such networks, which have no fixed infrastructure, is a continuing challenge. As the number of nodes in an area increases, the scope for increased interference between nodes increases. Also as nodes move around faster, the stability of links, i.e. their longevity, is reduced. The authors investigate the effects of high density and mobility on the performance of two well knows routing protocols, AODV and DSR.
