Comparative Analysis of Routing Protocols in AD- HOC Network: AODV, DSDV, DSR
Pages : 798-803
An ad-hoc wireless network consists of a set of mobile nodes (hosts) that are connected with wireless links. The network topology (the physical connectivity of the communication network) in such a network may keep changing randomly. Routing protocol that find a path to be followed by data packets from a source node to a destination node used in traditional wired networks cannot be directly applied in ad-hoc wireless network due to highly dynamic topology. There are various issues in designing a routing protocol for ad-hoc wireless network. This paper focuses on three routing protocol – AODV, DSR, DSDV of ad-hoc network. The main aim is to find the routing protocol giving best result at different data rates.The simulation platform used for evaluating the proposed approach is GloMoSim , a discrete event detailed simulator for wireless network systems.
