A Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is one of the narrowest and most specific of research topics in the field of telecommunications. The growth of this type of network, and the large number of applications with mobility requirements, has led to a wider study and research in the analysis and enhancement of the work in this area. In such networks, nodes are communicating with each other without the need of a centralized administration. In this topology, the communication between the nodes is done by pair to pair within the coverage area. The routing is managed and organized by a number of routing protocols.
