Mobile Ad hoc Network (MANET) is a collection of mobile nodes that are arbitrarily located so that the interconnections between nodes are dynamically changing. In MANET mobile nodes forms a temporary network without the use of any existing network infrastructure or centralized administration. A routing protocol is used to find routes between mobile nodes to facilitate communication within the network. The main goal of such an ad hoc network routing protocol is to establish correct and efficient route between a pair of mobile nodes so that messages delivered within the active route timeout interval. Route should be discovered and maintained with a minimum of overhead and bandwidth consumption. This paper presents performance evaluation of five different routing protocols i.e. Ad hoc On-Demand Distance Vector (AODV), dynamic state routing (DSR), Fisheye State Routing (FSR), landmark Routing Protocol(LANMAR), and Zone Routing Protocol (ZRP) in variable speed and simulation time. We have used random waypoint mobility model to design the network and performed simulations by using QualNet version 5.0 Simulator from Scalable Networks. Performance of AODV,DSR, FSR, LANMAR, and ZRP is evaluated based on Average end-to-end delay, Packet delivery ratio, Throughput and Average Jitter.

Keywords: MANET, AODV, DSR, FSR, LANMAR, ZRP, QualNet version 5.0.
