In a Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET), the topology of the network may change rapidly and unexpectedly due to mobility of nodes. Routing protocols operate differently under distinct environments. Thus, it is necessary to analyze the behavior of different routing protocols under distinct environments. Thus, setting up routes that meet high reliability is a very challenging issue. Another important problem in the MANETs is the energy consumption of nodes. The authors' study is more concentrated on IPv6 than IPv4.
