Abstract : In this paper, we describe the Optimized Link State Routing Protocol (OLSR), a proactive routing protocol for Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs). We evaluate its performance through exhaustive simulations using the Network Simulator 2 (ns2), and compare with other ad-hoc protocols, specifically the Ad-hoc On-Demand Distance Vector (AODV) routing protocol and the Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) protocol. We study the protocols under varying conditions (node mobility, network density) and with varying traffic (TCP, UDP, different number of connections/streams) to provide a qualitative assessment of the applicability of the protocols in different scenarios.
