A Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is a collection of wire-less mobile nodes forming a temporary network without using any existing infrastructure. Mobile Ad-Hoc is a dynamic, multi-hop and autonomous networks composed by wireless mobile nodes. MANETS are subject to rapid and unpredictable changes. MANETS are inexpensive wireless communication network. The mobility model represents the realistic behavior of each mobile node in the MANET. Routing Protocol for Ad-Hoc networks are typically evaluated using simulations. In this paper, the authors compare the performance of On-Demand Multicast Routing Protocol (ODMRP) with the Adaptive Demand driven Multicast Routing Protocol (ADMR) under different mobility models such as Random Way Point Model, Manhattan Model and Random Drunken Model.
