Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) Protocol Implementation in Ns-3
Routing protocols are essential to the performance of wireless networks especially in mobile ad-hoc scenarios. The development of new routing protocols requires comparing them against well-known protocols in various simulation environments. In this paper, we present an overview of the well-known MANET routing protocols and the implementation details of the DSR routing protocol in the ns-3 network simulator. We verify DSR routing performance under various scenarios and compare its performance against other protocols implemented in ns-3: AODV, DSDV, and OLSR. Our results show that the performance of DSR shares similar characteristics with AODV yet has slightly higher overall performance results in terms of the routing metrics we use.
