Abstract

Mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) provide communication of mobile nodes in an infrastructure-less environment. Factors like the mobility of nodes, dynamic topology of the nodes, path breakages, limited availability of resources, etc., affect QoS. This chapter carries important mobility models that are used for simulation. We have considered different mobility models, namely Random Way Point, Gauss Markov, Random Walk-2D, Random Direction-2D, and Constant Velocity. The parameters used for the experiment are PDR, delay, and throughput to check the impact of QoS in MANET using NS-3. It is noted that the Gauss Markov furnished better result concerning PDR and delay, whereas Constant velocity and Random Way Point model performs better for throughput among other mobility models. Researchers will be benefitted from this chapter. It will make them learn which mobility model gives better QoS support in MANET.
