Mobile Ad-hoc Networks are a collection of two or more devices equipped with wireless communications and multi-hop networking capability. We 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 exhibit that though DSR and AODV share an inherent on-demand behavior, the nuances in their protocol mechanics lead to performance differentials which are analyzed by varying the network size, network load and mobility. The simulation is carried out in NS2 where we employ the new trace format [1] to base our comparisons. We present a novel approach to analyze the protocols by varying parameters and making comparison in multiple dimensions to facilitate accurate observations. Additionally, we anatomize AODV which performs admirably in all but low mobility situations and make recommendations to enhance performance. © 2012 Springer-Verlag.
