Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is an autonomous system of mobile nodes connected by wireless links. Each node operates not only as an end system, but also as a router to forward packets. The nodes are free to move about and a network. These nodes change position frequently. The main classes of routing protocols are proactive, reactive and hybrid. A reactive (on-demand) routing strategy is a popular routing category for wireless ad hoc routing. It is a relatively new routing philosophy that provides a scalable solution to relatively large network topologies.
