MANET is a Mobile Ad hoc NETwork in which nodes are move freely and perform the communication. In mobile ad hoc network, directional antenna plays a vital role. Directional antenna has many advantages such as increased transmission range, higher gain and reduced interference. Directional antenna uses a set of elements which has fixed beam nature and radiate the frequency in all directions and also at a specific angle. In this paper, the authors analyze the performance of different directional antennas for different routing protocols such as AODV, LANMAR and RIP.
