Abstract

Mobile Ad-hoc Networks (MANETs) is a network without a fixed Infrastructure. In wireless networks users expect to get access to the network security and to exchange information anytime and anywhere. The ad hoc wireless network consists of mobile networks which creates architecture for communication without the help of traditional fixed-position routers. Establishing strong routes and providing security are the main tasks in MANETs. Routing is the critical issue in the MANET and focus based on routing protocols such as Ad hoc On-demand Distance Routing Protocol (AODV), Dynamic Source Routing (DSR), Temporally Ordered Routing Algorithm (TORA) and Optimized Link State Routing (OLSR) are interesting due to their applications. OPNET is used to establish the simulations of these routing protocols the performance of the routing protocols is studied by selecting metrics. Metrics are used to select the best path for exchanging information from source to destination. Result show that AODV and TORA is suitable for larger networks while changing network topology with selected metrics.
