This research evaluates the performance of Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) and Ad-hoc on-Demand Distance Vector (AODV) that are both reactive in nature in OPNET V 14.5. This study evaluates the performance of reactive routing protocols by applying different parameters like Number of nodes, topology change, mobility of nodes, throughput and also evaluates the behavior of these protocols when implemented in a various environment. In this research, result showed that AODV outperforms best in all.
