Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) is a special infrastructure-less infrastructure for mobile data communication. Due to the specialized characteristics present in mobile ad hoc networks are widely used in many applications. As mentioned above the demerits in some cases attributed to disturbances in the performance of MANET. What are the bases on which mobile ad hoc network project topics are evaluated?

  • End to end delay
  • Network overhead
  • Throughput
  • Packet delivery ratio

This allows the deployment of MANET in adverse conditions also which include disaster management applications, defense applications, etc. The major advantage of mobile ad hoc networks is that they do not require special infrastructure to be established. For instance, let us consider the frequent breakages in the link that is observed in mobile ad hoc networks. The following are the reasons for it.

  • Maximum rate off-channel error
  • The properties of the path like bandwidth, packet loss rate, and delay
  • Node mobility
  • Contentions in link layer

  • Consistency, Management, and Discovery are the important terminologies used in MANET

There are also many other technical terminologies that game significance in mobile ad hoc network functioning. You might have known the meaning of these terms prior. Here you can also seek the help of our research experts who are ready to provide you with total assistance for your research.

Get in touch with our technical team so as to understand various other terminologies and their importance in MANET research. Now let us see important criteria that are essential for mobile ad hoc network researchers to understand.


The following criteria in MANET are very much important for its functioning. 

  • Load in communication
    • The amount of packets transmitted and received by a node in a certain interval of time refers to communication load
    • Minimal load containing nodes are preferred in the hop role
  • Mobility
    • Distance between two node locations refers to mobility
    • Mobility can be relative in terms of variations in direction, motion, and velocity
    • When the ability of the neighbor is maximum a particular node show high performance even if it is having less mobility
  • Quality of neighbors
    • The quality of the node is decided based on its neighbor
    • If the neighbor remains for a long time then the node is good
    • Future mobility plays an important role in determining the quality of the neighbor
  • Trust and reputation
    • Good nodes are always used for routing
    • A node’s dedication to the network functioning is used to evaluate its quality of trust

These criteria have to be considered of the utmost importance when you design a mobile ad hoc network. Your project will gain significance only when it satisfies all the above criteria at the maximum level. 

To achieve this objective you can approach our technical experts who feel happy to help you always. We are here to support you throughout your research. Now let us have some ideas on mobility prediction techniques.


The methods and techniques used for predicting mobility in a mobile ad hoc network are based on the topology and prior history. The following are the common mobility prediction techniques used in MANET projects.

  • Based on the history of the movement
  • Physical topology
    • Estimation of time and link expiration
    • Estimating link availability
