Computer communication and networking acts a major role in latest trends such as in 5G communications, IoTs, Autonomous cars and Blockchain technology. Among the various communication networks MANET is an important network because of self-conﬁguring systems with versatile hubs associated to make self-assertive topology without any centralized unit. Routing protocols plays an important role in transmitting data from source to destination through efficient paths. They involve in finding the best route using route discovery process and finding the alternative route using route maintenance process. NS-3 is most widely used simulator for performance evaluation of MANET. In this research, performance of various ad hoc routing protocols is analyzed using protocol dependent and independent metrics using NS-3 simulator.
