Study and Performance Comparison of AODV & DSR on the Basis of Path Loss Propagation Models
Mobile Ad-Hoc NETworks (MANETs) are collection of mobile nodes that dynamically forming a temporary network without pre-existing network infrastructure and communicate with its neighbors to perform peer to peer communication and transmission. It offers unique benefits and versatility for certain environments and certain applications. Since there is no prerequisite fixed infrastructure and base stations, they can be created and used anytime, anywhere. Propagation models focused on predicting the average received signal strength at a given distance from the transmitter, as well as the variability of the signal strength in close spatial proximity to a particular location. The accuracy of any particular propagation model in any given condition will depend on the suitability among the constraints required by the model and depend on terrain.
