Realistic Comparison of Performance Parameters of Static and Dynamic Unicast Routing over Mesh Topology [ ]

In this paper a realistic comparison analysis of the static and dynamic routing protocols has been made. Parameters of performance selected for this analysis are average delay, average throughput and average packet loss in different mesh network. Both the routing protocols are used by the network architectures and designers in practice. A static routing protocol does not check the connection once it has been established i.e. during transmission of data transfer whereas dynamic routing protocol periodically checks the connection and also update the path accordingly. Analysis conducted in this paper presents that the dynamic routing is better than static routing in term of average delay and average packet delivery ratio while static routing is better than dynamic routing with respect to average throughput. All the simulations have been done with the help of Network Simulator Tool NS2.
