Performance Comparison and Evaluation of Different Multipath Routing Protocols Based on Various Scenario and Traffic Patterns for Mobile AD Hoc Networks

A MANET is an interconnection of mobile devices by wireless links forming a dynamic topology without much physical network infrastructure such as routers, servers, access points/cables or centralized administration. The multipath routing protocols establish efficient communication within the network by discovering multiple routes between a pair of source and destination in order to have load balancing to satisfy Quality of Service (QoS) requirements. In this paper, the performance comparison and evaluation of the widely used multipath routing protocols such as AOMDV, OLSR and ZRP are carried out in terms of five scenario patterns such as RWM, RPGM, MGM, GMM, and PM in two different traffic patterns such as CBR and TCP using NS2 and Bonn Motion.
