A Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is a collection of mobile nodes that forms on the fly a temporary wireless network in a self-organizing way, without established infrastructure. In MANET, the messages are exchange over a direct wireless link or including one or over a sequence of wireless links through intermediate nodes. For this purpose, routing protocols are required. Routing protocol is a protocol that specifies how routers communicate with each other, distribute information that enables them to select routes between any two nodes on a computer network.
