Abstract: Mobile Ad-hoc Network (MANET) is an infrastructure less and decentralized network which need a robust dynamic routing protocol. Many routing protocols for such networks have been proposed so far. The most popular ones are Dynamic Source Routing (DSR), Ad-hoc On Demand Distance Vector (AODV), and Destination-Sequenced Distance Vector (DSDV) routing protocol. In this paper, we are going to compare Mobile Ad-Hoc network routing protocols DSDV, AODV and DSR using network simulator NS-2. The performance matrix includes PDF (Packet delivery fraction), Average end-to-end delay, and Normalized Routing Load. We have compared the performance of routing protocols by varying pause time, number of nodes and maximum speed. The comparison result shows that AODV has the highest PDF and NRL while DSR gives the highest Average End-to-End delay.
