Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is a group of wireless mobile nodes forming a self-configuring network without any need of infrastructure. Routing protocol plays an important role for effective connection between mobile nodes and operates on the basic assumption that nodes are fully cooperative. Since MANETs are not presently deployed on a large scale, research in this area is primarily a simulation based. Among alternative simulation parameters, the mobility model plays a very vital role in determining the protocol performance in MANET.
