The Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) is a reactive unicast routing protocol that utilizes source routing algorithm. In source routing
algorithm, each data packet contains complete routing information to reach its dissemination. Additionally, in DSR each node uses caching
technology to maintain route information that it has learnt. The Zone Routing Protocol (ZRP) is a hybrid routing protocol for mobile ad hoc
networks. The hybrid protocols are proposed to reduce the control overhead of proactive routing approaches and decrease the latency caused by
route search operations in reactive routing approaches. In this paper we discussed the effectiveness of a Reactive Zone Routing Protocol(RZRP)
through a simulation of sending and receiving of information in a timely based by comparing with DSR protocol. Simulation results shows the
Time Process and Time Consumed for both protocols in several cases.



Keywords: RZRP, Intrazone Routing Protocol, Interzone Routing Protocol, DSR, Time Process, Time Consumed.
