Recent advances in portable computing and wireless technologies are opening up exciting possibilities for the future of wireless mobile networking. A Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) consists of mobile platforms which are free to move arbitrarily. This is in contrast with the topology of the existing Internet, where the router topology is essentially static. In MANET, the nodes are mobile and inter-node connectivity may change frequently during normal operation. In this paper, the authors present an analysis of Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector routing (AODV) protocol and evaluate the performance of the protocol.
