Review on Routing Protocols in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks

Madhu Bala, Harpreet Kaur


Abstract: Statistics show that remote innovation is picking up popularity day by day. Today, person sitting at either end of the nation can speak with each other with the aid of wireless technology. Mobile ad hoc Network (MANETs) is a type of wireless ad hoc network which is a collection of mobile devices that creates random topology for communication. The fineness of MANETs is that it not required any central controller or base station. MANETs is only a network in which devices worked as a host as well as router. Routing in ad hoc networks has become a popular research topic. There are several routing protocols have been developed for ad hoc networks. In MANET, it is very stiff task to predict the performance of routing protocol under varying network conditions and scenarios. This review paper is discussing the three approaches of routing protocols such as Reactive (On demand), Proactive (table driven) and Hybrid routing protocols within their advantage and disadvantage.


MANETS, Proactive, Reactive, Hybrid.
