There are two important protocols based property in mobile wireless networks and these are ZRP and AODV for understanding concept of wireless networks. Both have own properties and characteristics. As we know that mobile based temporary network is an infrastructure free network and it has ability for self configurability, easy deployment etc. Effective and efficient routing protocols will help to make this network more reliable. The characteristics of self-organization and wireless medium make Mobile Ad hoc Network (MANET) easy to set up and thus attractive to users. Its open and dynamic nature enhance its easy to handle and operate. Motivation of this paper is to determine basic difference ZRP and AODV under two different simulators.
