Effects Of Mobility On Adhoc Routing Protocols Model

[Full Text]



Raham Mehmood Niazi, Muhammad Ubaid Mehmood Khan






Mobile ad-hoc network (MANET) generally known as the ad-hoc temporary network, used for an exchange of messages from node to node, it doesn’t depend on its previous deployed infrastructure. Mobile devices that are a broadcaster in nature are capable of wireless communication and enable the creation of a large ubiquitous adhoc network. Users that are in a range of these nodes forming a MANET can have access to resources at any time and at any place. However, due to the constant traffic of nodes, the link between the nodes is constantly being destroyed, so the architecture faces a dynamically unstable topology. The mobility of nodes can have a dark effect on the topology of MANET. Therefore, understanding the impact of mobility on MANET is very important. The important feature of MANET is mobility of nodes that form a dynamic topology. This paper emphasizes on the effect of mobility on the MANET when using these two protocols; first is DSR (Reactive Protocol) and the other is DSDV (Proactive Protocol). For experimental dedications, we consider 4 mobile models: random waypoints, random point group model, freeways, and Manhattan models. We choose these four types of moving model to indicate the possibility of practical use. The paper will analyze that performance of routing protocols differs according to unstable patterns of mobility, due to node’s density, and data transmitted path length.
