Routing Protocols for Ad Hoc Mobile Wireless Networks

Padmini Misra, Ohio State University


The routing protocols meant for wired networks can not be used for mobile ad hoc networks because of the mobility of networks. The ad hoc routing protocols can be divided into two classes :- table-driven and on-demand. This paper discusses routing protocols belonging to each category.
