Many protocols for Ad-hoc wireless networks have been developed in the recent years but very little information is available on the performance of such protocols. The recent advancements in the field of the wireless networks lead to the development of the short-lived networks formally known as Mobile Ad-hoc Networks (MANET). The network is decentralized, where all network activity, including discovering the topology and transmission of messages must be executed by the nodes themselves. Always selecting the shortest route towards the base station causes the intermediate nodes to deplete faster, these results in a decreased network lifetime. These routing mechanisms primarily differ in behavior at different mobility speeds, where the techniques are mainly influenced by the network characteristics. In this research mobility-speed analysis of MANET GRP routing has done at different speeds with different number of mobile nodes, to find optimal mobility behavior.
