MANET - Mobile Ad Hoc Network is a network topology deprived of any supporting structure. Each node in the network acts as both host and router. In order for the network to work, a routing protocol like AODV (Ad hoc On-demand Distance Vector) has to be used to deliver packets. The main assumption of MANET is its mobility. In this paper AODV, the protocol responsible for transferring data in the network will be tested, compared and analysed under different working conditions using the NS-3 network simulator.
