A Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is composed of mobile nodes that are dynamically reconfigurable, self organized and which provide on-demand networking solution. The goal of MANETs is to extend mobility into the realm of mobile, autonomous and wireless domains, where a group of nodes form the network routing infrastructure in an ad-hoc fashion. The nodes in the mobile ad hoc networks act as host and router, the routing protocol is the primary issue and has to be supported before any applications can be deployed for mobile ad-hoc networks. Recently, many research protocols are proposed for finding an efficient route between the nodes.
