"A Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) is a collection of mobile nodes that can communicate with each other using wireless links without utilizing any fixed based station infrastructure and centralized management. In the present advanced technology there are many developments in Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs) protocols. MANET is the wireless technology used in various applications like military, mobile devices etc, so improving the performance is an advantage in it. There are different parameters taken from MANET like routing, energy consumption, latency, bandwidth, traffic, packet loss etc. In this way there are many parameters taken as issue and new protocols are designed."
