A Qualitative Study of AODV and TORA Routing Protocols in Wireless Networks

Konduri Sucharitha, R Latha

Abstract


A mobile Ad-Hoc network is a collection of autonomous wireless nodes without any fixed infrastructure and centralized administration. This paper presents a survey with an objective to compare Ad-Hoc routing protocols AODV and DSR taking into consideration different network parameters performed using simulation, emulation and real world experiments. Various researchers over time have analyzed the performance of AODV and DSR routing protocols based on the different test parameter and environment. AODV and DSR have been mostly studied through simulation, while fewer implementations of these protocols have been done on real network test-bed. The objective of this survey is to review the AODV and DSR protocols based on the performance metrics such as mobility pattern, packet delivery ratio, average end to end delay, throughput, packet drop, node density and in different test environments.
