Performance Comparison of Different Routing Protocols "AODV and AOMDV" Under Different Traffic Densities
A Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is a dynamic wireless network that can be formed without the need for any preexisting infrastructure in which each node can act as a router. One of the main challenges of MANET is the design of robust routing algorithms that adapt to the frequent and randomly changing network topology. A variety of routing protocols have been proposed and several of them have been extensively simulated or implemented as well. In this paper, the authors compare and evaluate the performance of two types of On-demand routing protocols-Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) routing protocol, which is unipath and Ad-hoc On-demand Multipath Distance Vector (AOMDV) routing protocol.
