Abstract

The MANET routing protocols should be tested under realistic conditions of the network including various parameters such as network size, representative data traffic models, realistic movements of the mobile users, etc. Many factors impinge the performance evaluation of MANETs routing protocols. Mobile nodes are communicated with each other with the help of routing protocols. Unpredictable movement of a mobile node affect the routing information which directly interrupt the subsist communication. A mobility model is used to depict the realistic movements of mobile nodes in the designed scenario. In this study the group mobility model has been used to deploy the mobility effect in the scenario. The goal of this paper is to investigate the impact of group mobility on performance of routing protocols under group mobility model using QualNet simulator. In the paper it is illustrate that how the performance results of an ad hoc network protocol drastically change with the increasing node density.The various scenarios investigated with varying density of nodes in groups. Performance analysis is carried out on the basis of performance metrics under group mobility model. The outcome of this work shows that mobility has a detrimental impact on the performance of routing protocols. From the simulation results, it is shown that the DSR protocol clearly outperform all other routing protocols with increasing node density under group mobility model.
