Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is an infrastructure less and decentralized network which need a robust dynamic routing protocol. Many routing protocols for such networks have been proposed so far. The most popular ones are Dynamic Source Routing (DSR), Ad-hoc On Demand Distance Vector (AODV), and Destination-Sequenced Distance Vector (DSDV) routing protocol. In this paper, the authors are going to compare Mobile Ad-Hoc network routing protocols DSDV, AODV and DSR using network simulator NS-2. The performance matrix includes PDF (Packet Delivery Fraction), Average end-to-end delay, and Normalized Routing Load. They have compared the performance of routing protocols by varying pause time, number of nodes and maximum speed.
