Performance Evaluation of AODV, DSR, OLSR, and GRP MANET Routing Protocols Using OPNET

Adel Aneiba and Mohammed Melad
Abstract—Routing is a critical issue in MANET and therefore, this is the focus of this paper, along with the performance analysis of its routing protocols. In this paper the performance of four MANET routing protocols (AODV, DSR, OLSR and GRP) are compared. To evaluate and validate the performance of these protocols, a feasibility study in the form of simulations were carried out. In these experiments, the four protocols were tested under different scenarios and circumstances using a simulation tool called OPNET. The performance of these routing protocols is analyzed based on two performance metrics: delay and through put. The simulation results have shown that on average, under heavy FTP traffic condition, the OLSR protocol outperforms the other three protocols with respect to the mentioned metrics under two scenarios (20 and 80 mobile nodes) that have been created in OPNET.

Index Terms—FTP, MANET, OPNET, routing protocols.
