MANETs Indoor Performance Analysis Under the Influence of Dynamic Propagation Path Loss Conditions
In this paper, the authors have analyzed the performance of a Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) for two routing strategies (i.e., Adhoc On-demand Distance Vector Routing (AODV) and Optimised Link State Routing (OLSR)) under various indoor channel propagation conditions. Two new propagation pathloss models (i.e., ITU & WINNER) were incorporated into the network simulator (ns-2) and simulation results were then compared with the Lognormal Shadowing model, which is available in ns-2. The quantitative performance metrics such as Packet Delivery Ratio (PDR), Normalized Routing Load (NRL) and Mean end-to-end Delay (Mean. Delay) were incorporated for both routing strategies.
