Abstract: Mobile Ad-hoc Network is a collection of wireless devices that can be set up instantly anywhere and anytime without the needs of any pre-existing network infrastructure. It is an autonomous system in which mobile devices are connected through wireless links and free to move randomly and often act as host as well as router at the same time. The main objective of this paper is to simulation based analysis of MANET routing protocols viz. Destination Sequence Distance Vector (DSDV), Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) and Ad-hoc On Demand Distance Vector (AODV) on the basis of different performance metrics which are throughput, packet delivery ratio, routing overheads, packet drop. The simulation is performed through the simulation tool Network Simulator-2 (NS-2) due to its open source simplicity and free availability.
Keywords: Destination Sequence Distance Vector (DSDV), Dynamic Source Routing (DSR), Ad-hoc On Demand Distance Vector (AODV), Network Simulator (NS-2).
