Tools for Performance Assessment of OLSR Protocol

Received29 Apr 2009
Accepted29 Apr 2009


In this paper, we evaluate the performance of Optimized Link State Routing (OLSR) protocol by experimental and simulation results. The experiments are carried out by using our implemented testbed and the simulations by using ns-2 simulator. We also designed and implemented a new interface for the ad-hoc network testbed in order to make more easier the experiments. The comparison between experimental and simulation results shows that for the same parameters set, in the simulation we did not notice any packet loss. On the other hand, in the experiments we experienced packet loss because of the environment effects and traffic interference.
