In MANETS all the nodes are mobile which are dependent on battery. In MANETS each node have to make connection to receiver node in order to send /forward the data packets in network. As in network there are many mobile nodes and nodes are moving, to send these data packets we required routing protocols .There are many routing Protocols which are classified into 3 types. Proactive, Reactive and Hybrid routing protocols. In this paper we make comparison between proactive and reactive routing protocol based on some performance metrics such as propagation delay, node throughput, and average end to end delay, packet jitters. For comparing proactive and reactive routing protocol we use these two routing protocol a proactive routing protocol DSDV (Destination Sequenced Distance Vector routing )and reactive improvement of DSDV routing AODV(Ad-hoc on demand vector routing).</p> Gaurav Pandey Prerna Bharti ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2017-11-23 2017-11-23 4 1 127 132 10.24297/ijnpc.v4i1.6469
