"In this study, a comprehensive analysis of the impact of mobility on end-to-end performance measures of Mobile Ad Hoc Network is performed by using small-scale fading models. Network simulation is performed in order to study a wide range of phenomena occurring during MANET communication. The effectiveness of three reactive routing protocols against different level of mobility is observed under varying network parameter like the network size, number of nodes and network connectivity. The study reveals that the network sparseness or density favors one or the other routing mechanism under varying mobility. Outcome of the simulation also provides a great deal of information about the routing mechanism of the reactive protocols. Based upon the finding of the study, an adaptive speed aware routing protocol is proposed which is expected to increase the effectiveness of the routing protocol by avoiding high velocity nodes in the intermediate route. The proposed protocol is expected to outperform the existing reactive routing protocols at higher mobility and in scaled up network"--Abstract, page iii.
