What is a Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET)

The significant aim of providing Mobile Adhoc Networks (MANET) Seminar Presentation is to enable the mobile communication, MANETs is the generally used term of Mobile Adhoc Networks and these doesn’t have a specific infrastructure configuration and can be operated in any situations and therefore these are called as “infrastructure less Networks”. Several routing protocols are developed to maintain the routing procedure across the Mobile Adhoc Networks and these routing protocols are used to maintain the routing across the MANETs thus the performance of routing depends on the well-developed mechanisms of routing and the technology used internally in the routing protocols.

The routing protocols that are developed for Mobile Adhoc Networks MANETs are divided into three types the first one is the table driven routing protocols which are also called as proactive routing protocols and the second one is the on-demand routing protocols which are called as reactive protocols and hybrid routing protocol is the other one. These protocols are divided depending on the operational modes that are used across the network and also depending on the level of support they give for the infrastructure. In general several nodes are connected to each other by means of some links with in a route to form a MANET with a significant aim of transferring data packets from the source node to the destination node.

Mobile Adhoc Networks Paper Presentation:

The routing among the source node and the destination node is decided by the routing protocol that is used in that network. In general a MANET can be represented using an arbitrary graph and even dynamic graphs are used to represent the MANET in some cases and the mobile terminals are represented using the nodes and each and every routing path that is accessible among the nodes is represented by the links that are used to connect the nodes.

The extent of radio frequency is generally high in MANETs and that was the main in reason in using the multi-hop routing in Mobile Adhoc Networks MANETs, in comparison with the other formats the range of radio frequency is more which is considered as the format of wireless communication and therefore in order to enable routing across these routing protocols a high-end implementation is necessary.

Across the MANETs, the routing protocol’s performance is influenced by several aspects and they are route maintenance, level of security that is applied throughout the network, different kinds of applications that MANETs supports, router configuration and various types of traffics that are passed across the network.
