Simulation Based Comparative Study of AODV, DSR and ZRP Routing Protocol at 20, 50 Nodes in Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs) Using Qualnet Simulation tools 5.0.2

Suresh Kumar, Jogendra Kumar


A Mobile Ad-Hoc Network (MANET) is a collection of wireless mobile nodes forming a temporary network without using any centralized access point, infrastructure, or centralized administration of the mobile networks .Data transmission between two nodes requires multiple hops as nodes transmission range is limited in Mobile Ad hoc networks (MANET’s). Mobility of the networks nodes to makes the situation even more complicated in wireless networks. Multiple routing protocols find optimized routes from a source to some destination. This articles presents performance analysis of three different routing protocols Ad hoc on demand routing protocol (AODV), Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) and Zone Routing Protocol (ZRP). This article mainly focuses on comparing the performance analysis of three routing protocols taken different 20, 50 nodes in Mobile Ad-Hoc networks (MANET’s). We have used QualNet Simulator 5.0.2 from Scalable Networks to perform the simulations. Comparative Performance analysis of AODV, DSR and ZRP is evaluated based on performance metrics like Average end to end delay(s), TTL based hop count, Average Jitters(s) and throughput (bits/s) in Mobile ad hoc networks (MANET).


Keywords: AODV, DSR, ZRP, MANET, QualNet 5.0.2 etc.
