AbstractA MANET is a collection of autonomous mobile devices. In MANETs, the nodes are mobile the network may change unpredictably over time. In this paper, we investigate the impact of three node deployment models, namely Grid, Random and Circular with different simulation time for TORA routing protocol of QoS metrics using the OPNET 14.5 simulator. Simulation results reveal that Random node deployment model outperforms circular and grid node deployment model.
