Investigating the Impact of Pause Time and Terrain Regions on the Performance of AODV and FLBNTTPEAODV for MANETs
Mobile ad-hoc network is an infrastructure-less network consisting of mobile nodes connected by wireless links. The mobile nodes establish the dynamic topology due to their mobility feature. The mobility nature of the nodes in the mobile ad hoc network leads to dynamic topology. Establishing proper paths among the nodes for communication in this kind of network is really a challenging aspect. In this paper, the impact of pause time and terrain regions on AODV (Ad-Hoc On-demand Distance Vector) and FLBNTTPEAODV (Fuzzy Logic Based Node Traversal Time Performance Enhanced AODV) routing approaches are investigated using network simulator version 2.34. Significant performance improvement is observed in packet delivery ratio and a huge reduction in end-to-end delay with FLBNTTPEAODV.
