Tarali Kalita, Prof. Shikhar Kr. Sarma,"Performance evaluation of Reactive routing protocols in MANET using NS-3 Simulation". International Journal of Computer Trends and Technology (IJCTT) V57(2):70-73, March 2018. ISSN:2231-2803. Published by Seventh Sense Research Group.

Mobile ad-hoc network (MANET) is a part of wireless network where each node acts as a router and they can communicate with each other without using any base station. Performance evaluation in MANET can be done based on the quality of service parameters like end to end delay, packet delivery ratio, throughput, routing overhead and also loss of packet under various circumstances like speed of mobility, number of nodes, simulation time etc. In this paper for reactive routing protocols like DSR, AODV we measure the quality of services in terms of performance parameters like end to end delay, packet receiving rate per second and throughput using NS-3 simulator.
