Performance Comparison of Routing Protocols in MANET Varying Network Size


A mobile ad hoc network (MANET) consists of mobile wireless nodes in which the communication between nodes is carried out without any centralized control. MANET is a self organized and self configurable network where the mobile nodes move arbitrarily. The mobile nodes can receive and forward packets as a router. Routing is a critical issue in MANET. Therefore focus in this paper is to compare the performance of three routing protocols DSDV, DSR and AODV for CBR traffic by varying no. of nodes in terms of packet delivery ratio, end to end delay, routing overhead and throughput. The simulation is carried out on NS2.
