Performance Evaluation of AODV and DSDV Routing Protocols in Self Organizing Architecture

Ruby Bhagat, Nitika Chowdhary, Jyoteesh Malhotra


Self organizing networks are a promising technology to cater the needs of the future wireless networks and ad-hoc networks are one of the reliable and effective networks. Therefore, ad-hoc network is local area computer network (LAN) in which the individual network nodes forward packets to and from each other. A mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is made of wireless nodes which act as personal digital assistant .There is no centralized architecture control between the communicating nodes. MANET is a self configurable, reliable and self organized network where the mobile nodes move in any direction and the mobile nodes can receive as well as forward packets as a router. So, in this paper, a survey has done on proactive routing protocols and reactive routing protocol and performance is evaluated by comparing two routing protocols DSDV and AODV. For simulations NS-2 have used and generation of packets, end to end delay and throughput is evaluated of these protocols


MANET, DSDV, AODV, Throughput.
