Abstract—The field of Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs) has gained an important part of the interest of researchers and become very popular in last few years. MANETs can operate without fixed infrastructure and can survive rapid changes in the network topology. They can be studied formally as graphs in which the set of edges varies in time. The main method for evaluating the performance of MANETs is simulation. This paper is subjected to the on-demand routing protocols with identical loads and environment conditions and evaluates their relative performance with respect to the two performance metrics: average End-to-End delay and packet delivery ratio. We investigated various simulation scenarios with varying pause times. From the detailed simulation results and analysis, a suitable routing protocol can be chosen for a specified network and goal.
