Mobile ad hoc networks are self-configuring and self-organizing wireless networks with no infrastructure in which mobile nodes cooperate in a friendly manner for multi-hop forwarding. Due to the mobile nature of the nodes in mobile ad hoc networks, the applications of these networks are diverse, ranging from home networking to intelligent transport, military exercises and campus network. However, this mobility of nodes makes the network vulnerable to frequent topology changes. Consequently, routing in mobile ad hoc networks is much more complex than in other wireless networks. Here in this paper we proposed two reactive protocols i-e AODV and DSR, and to analyse the data delivery ratio of static and dynamic intermediate nodes as well as source to destination in campus networks and also to compare the global and object statistics as well as recent simulated statistics of both reactive protocols. We also compare the global and object simulation statistics to get best results during simulation with different metrics in simulation of DSR and AODV routing protocols. Here we suggest that the combined performance of both protocols make a very strong performance contribution in ad hoc networks using OPNET simulator. Results also shows that 3G ad-hoc can make a very strong contribution towards 4G cellular networks for our future generation.
