Abstract: Mobile Ad hoc network is a self-configuring infrastructure less network of mobile devices connected by wireless links. Each device in a MANET is free to move independently in any direction and links will be changed frequently with other devices. Each host acts like a router and forward to its neighbors. To forward packets between routers we have various MANET routing protocol. An Ad hoc routing protocol is a convention that controls how nodes decide which way to route packet between computing devices in a mobile ad hoc network. In this paper our main focus is to analyze, simulate and evaluate the performance of Routing Protocols (DSR, AODV and TORA).
Keywords: AODV, DSR, TORA, MANET.
