A Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is a collection of wireless mobile nodes forming a temporary network without using fix communication. It means that nodes are connected through a wireless medium forming rapidly changing topologies and nodes are free to move about and organize themselves in to a network. These nodes change positions frequently. The main classes of routing protocols are proactive, reactive and hybrid. A reactive (on-demand) routing strategy is a popular routing category for wireless ad hoc routing.
