Abstract

The Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) is a group of portable points establishing an immediate network without stationary topology. In this network, every node behaves in dual purpose once work like router then works as a host at the same time. Furthermore. The ability of nodes to leave or connect in the network in an easy manner. To establish efficient connection inside the network, we used routing protocols to explorer paths among nodes. The guarantee of finding optimum path formation between couples of nodes is the primary goal of the routing protocol. The MANET routing is a complicated mission that imposes to improve several diverse routing protocols in MANETs. Our main goal of this paper is to examine and differentiate the performance of two reactive routing protocols, Ad-hoc on demand Distance Vector (AODV) and Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) in MANET. We applied two performance metrics, average throughput and average end-to-end delay. We make simulation study based on Network Simulator (NS) version 2.35 to test the mentioned performance metrics of the routing protocols by varying the packet size and number of nodes. The final analysis with realistic outcomes shows that AODV has better performance than DSR in terms of throughput whereas DSR is better for the low average end-to-end delay.
