Performance Comparison of AODV/DSR On-Demand Routing Protocols for Ad Hoc Networks

Authors(2) :-Bhavesh Kataria, Jethva Harikrishna

Ad hoc networks are characterized by multihop wireless connectivity, frequently changing network topology and the need for efficient dynamic routing protocols. I compare the performance of two prominent on demand routing protocols for mobile ad hoc networks—Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) and Ad Hoc On-Demand Distance Vector Routing (AODV). We demonstrate that even though DSR and AODV share similar on-demand behaviour, the differences in the protocol mechanics can lead to significant performance differentials. The AODV out-perform DSR in the normal situation but in the constrained situation DSR out-performs AODV, the degradation is as severe as (30%) in AODV whereas DSR degrades marginally (10%) as observed through simulation [7].
