Abstract -
Mobile Ad-Hoc Network (MANET) is a set of wireless mobile nodes dynamically form spontaneous network which works without centralized administration. Due to this characteristic, there are some challenges that protocol designers and network developers are faced with. These challenges include routing, service and frequently topology changes. Therefore, routing discovery and maintenance are critical issues in these networks. There are also limited battery power and low bandwidth available in each node. Efficient routing has always been a matter of concern for MANETs. While reactive protocols are competing with the performance of proactive protocols, hybrid protocols have attempted to brew the best of both. In this paper, we evaluate the performance of five MANET routing protocols using simulations: AODV, DSR, GRP, OLSR and TORA. Our evaluation metrics are end-to-end delay, network load and throughput. Most of the papers consider only the use of IPv4, but here we also consider the use of IPv6 in addition to MPLS technology.
