Abstract

A mobile ad hoc network is a collection of mobile nodes that communicate with each other, generally not having any infrastructure. It uses traditional TCP/IP structure to provide end to end communication between the nodes. Nodes are temporally connected to each other; a network does not have any central control station. All the nodes act as routers and participate in path discovery and maintenance to the other nodes in the network. This allow user to create their PAN. The network topology keeps on changing as per requirement of the user, because of this changing scenario, network management, routing update and other tasks cannot be performed easily. Hence there are lots of challenges which shall remain unfulfilled. Various types of routing protocol have been introduced to accomplish requirements of ad hoc network, in this paper different types of routing protocols & their routing strategies have been discussed.
