A Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is a self organizing, self-configuring infrastructure less network of mobile devices such as laptops, smart phones, and sensors etc that can communicate with each other over a wireless links and cooperate in a distributed manner in order to provide the necessary network functionality. Any mobile nodes can join or leave the network at anytime without causing network failure in MANET. In this paper, the authors compare the performance of routing protocols i.e., AODV and DSR in MANET in terms of Packet Delivery Ratio (PDR), throughput, average end to end delay, jitter, routing load, and routing frequency by using a fixed number of nodes, by varying the pause time and mobility of nodes using network simulator ns-2.35.
