Productivity Analysis of AODV and DSDV Routing Protocols In MANETs

A Udaya Kumar | V Lakshmana Rao | K Purushotam Naidu | S Sagar


Abstract: The study of routing protocols in MANETs is one that requires a great deal of research due to the challenges it poses as a consequence of continuous mobility and lack of infrastructure. Several factors such as throughput, packet delivery ratio, end to end delay, overhead and so on need to be considered to decide upon the most suitable protocol for Ad hoc communication. Basically, the routing protocols of MANETs can be categorized as proactive and reactive. In this paper, our main focus has been to select a category of protocol out of two (i. e. proactive & reactive). For this we have selected, implemented and analyzed the best protocols of these categories and compared the results, using NS2, NAM and AWK. The protocols that we have selected are DSDV and AODV from proactive and reactive categories respectively, based on their relative advantages and disadvantages in comparison to the other protocols of their category.
