Abstract

In this paper we evaluate the performance of Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) protocol in mobile ad hoc network for single-performance metric and multi-performance metrics. Using Taguchi design of experiment, we quantify the main effects of six influential factors (terrain, network size, node speed, pause time, number of sources and transmission rates) on two performance metrics (throughput and end-to-end delay). The analysis of means (ANOM) and analysis of variance (ANOVA) on single and multi-response signal to noise ratio are employed to determine the best conditions required and to identify the level of importance of factors in order to obtain the best performance of DSR protocol.
