Simulative Analysis of AODV Routing Protocol Of MANET Using OPNET Modeler 14.0
Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is considered as a new paradigm of multi-hop wireless network created by group of mobile nodes for wireless communication. Due to dynamic changes in the network topology of MANET it's routing is considered a challenging task. In this paper, the performance of most popular AODV (Ad hoc On-demand Distance Vector) reactive routing protocol is evaluated. This paper describes the whole network strategy with performance metrics which are to be used in the OPNET simulation for the analysis.
