Abstract [en]

We compare the major MANET protocols, AODV, DSR and OLSR, using a set of the same scenarios recreated in simulation, emulation and real world. The purpose of this is twofold:

1. To explore the utility of simulation and emulation in direct relation to the real world in the area of mobile ad hoc networks. We explore potential discrepancies in the results that could either improve the confidence in previous research or to indicate the need for deeper exploration. To our knowledge, no previous work has done this in the consistent manner that we have. Our work may also function as a validation to previous findings in simulation and emulation.

2. To compare, side-by-side, the performance of the major MANET routing protocols to better understand the trade-offs in the design choices of the different protocols and how they can complement each other to improve MANET routing. The MANET research area has reached a level of maturity, both in terms of protocol specifications and implementations, where we believe this type of comparison is necessary to further the development and standardization of MANET technology. In this paper we will concentrate on the first aspect of exploring potential discrepancies in the results. Significant differences have been identified in delay variation, packet loss, and interaction with transport layer protocols.
