Performance Evaluation of Proactive, Reactive and Hybrid Routing Protocols Considering Link SNR Value Using Qualnet

Routing protocols in MANET such as OLSR-INRIA, DSR and ZRP finds out the path between a given sources destination node pair without considering the reliability of the links in the selected path. Some links in MANET are unreliable due to interference from transmissions from adjacent links, ambient noise system noise, jamming signals from intruder nodes all of which results in low throughput, packet delivery ratio, high jitter and end-to-end delay. In this paper, the authors use Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) as a measure of the link reliability.
