Abstract—Mobile ad-hoc networks are characterized as networks without any physical connections. In these networks there is no fixed topology due to the mobility of nodes, interference, multi-path propagation and path loss. The protocol suite includes several routing protocols specifically designed for ad-hoc routing. The main aim of this paper is acquiring the detailed understanding of ad hoc routing protocols, implementing the Mobility models, analyzing the performance differentials of routing protocols under mobility. The conventional routing protocols such as shortest-path routing algorithms are not particularly well suited for operation in ad-hoc networking environment. The most widely used ad hoc routing protocols are Ad-hoc On-Demand Distance Vector Routing (AODV), Destination Sequenced Distance Vector (DSDV), Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) and Temporally - Ordered Routing Algorithm (TORA). In this paper, the three random based mobility models such as Random waypoint, Random walk and Random Directions were implemented. The two different parameter constraints like packet-delivery fraction and End-to end packet delivery delay are compared with respect to mobility speed, Traffic and Network size. The simulation results shows that the AODV protocols in Random Waypoint mobility model performs better than DSDV, TORA and DSR in Random walk and random Direction mobility model.
