— Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is a collection of mobile nodes that are arbitrarily located so that the interconnections between nodes are dynamically changing. In MANET mobile nodes form a temporary network without the use of any existing network infrastructure or centralized administration. A routing protocol is used to find routes between mobile nodes to facilitate communication within the network. Route should be discovered and maintained with a minimum of overhead and bandwidth consumption. A wide range of routing protocols for MANETs has been proposed by researchers to overcome the limitations of wired routing protocols. This paper presents performance evaluation of three different routing protocols, i.e., Dynamic Source Routing (DSR), Optimized Link State Routing (OLSR) and Fisheye State Routing (FSR) in variable pause time. We have used Random Waypoint mobility model and performed simulations by using QualNet version 5.0 Simulator from Scalable Networks. Performance of DSR, OLSR and FSR is evaluated based on Average end to end delay, Packet delivery ratio, Throughput and Average Jitter.
