The mobile nodes in a network which can communicate with each other through a radio wave without any specific infrastructure is widely known as Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET). MANET has a number of routing protocols. The popular routing protocols so far are Dynamic Source Routing (DSR), Destination Sequenced Distance Vector (DSDV), Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) and Temporally-Ordered Routing Algorithm (TORA) routing protocol. Among them the AODV routing protocol meets efficiently with the ad-hoc network specification.
