Delay analysis in ad hoc on demand distance vector based networks
ABSTRACT The purpose of this paper is to investigate and undertake simulation-based evaluation of ad hoc networks. The paper has three folds: first, to investigate ad hoc networks revealing what constitutes its performance criteria for evaluation; secondly, fold is to study the ad hoc on demand distance vector (AODV) working architecture and simulation model considering important parameters; and lastly, to simulate for delay results and suggest enhancement to overcome possible shortcomings observe in real time application. The simulation environment is based on the AODV model implemented in Opnet 10.0 (from contributed model directory and NIST-AODV project). Simulation criteria of the ad hoc network include end-to-end-delay and route acquisition latency.
