Performance Evaluation of Routing Protocols for Manet Using NS2
Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is a group of wireless node, which rapidly moves, changes and forms a network without need of centralized controlling entity. The entire nodes in MANET intercommunicate with other node which stays in its relative frequency range. Each node in MANET works as router, so each node forward packet to neighbor node until packet it reaches to destination. There are many routing protocols as DSR, AODV, DSDV, TORA, and OLSR etc each having its own working mechanism. In this paper, the authors are presenting performance comparability with DSR, TORA and LEACH protocols based on metrics such as Throughput, Average Jitter, End to End Delivery, and Packet Delivery Ratio by using NS2 Simulator.
