Survey on Wireless Ad-hoc Network

B.M. Harshitha, Veena V. Pattankar


Mobile Ad-hoc Networks is a collection of two or more devices with wireless communications and networking application. These devices can communicate with other nodes that are within their radio range or one that is outside their radio range. The nodes should have an intermediate node to be the router to route the packet from the source toward the destination between the networks. The Wireless Ad-hoc Networks do not have gateway, as every node can act as the gateway. The reason for this is that Mobile Ad-hoc Networks are never used in practice, As argument, we try to clarify the definition, architecture, prons and cons, congestion types a of MANET. Although many works have been done to solve the problem, we will show in this paper the algorithm used for routing.
