Current developing year’s lot of researcher’s interested in Mobile Ad-hoc Networks (MANETs), a collection of mobile nodes that dynamically form a network connection temporarily without any base station of static infrastructure. Caused by mobility of nodes, routing take a vital role in transmission and numerous routing protocols are available like table-driven, on-demand and hybrid. The protocol presents the mechanism which reduces route loops and confirms trustworthy message exchange. The Associative Based Routing (ABR) routing system is a non-demand routing protocol designed for ad-hoc mobile nodes. Hop count, total interference, node link delay, residual energy of anode and the node transmission power are the cost parameters assigned for link and path of the ad-hoc networks. These parameters are combined in different optimization function with respect to various routing algorithm for selecting the optimal path. In this technical research paper accesses the modified ABR routing protocol with two different topology’s multicast parameters to acquire dynamic network performance metrics like Packet Delivery Ratio (PDR), Routing Overhead (RO), Average Energy (AE), End-to-End Delay (E-to-E D) and Throughput via Network Simulator 2 (NS2).
