In the recent years, the Ad-Hoc networks have been the focus of many researches especially in the routing protocols which include Proactive and Reactive routing. The strategy of forwarding the data packets from the source to the destination is the ultimate goal of routing protocols. Hence, the difference between these protocols is based on searching, maintenance and recovering the route path. The potential problem in Ad-Hoc networks is how to determine the optimum routing protocol that satisfies the needs of the application regarding to some criteria. This work will present the evaluation of proactive routing protocol Routing Information Protocol (RIP) and reactive routing protocol Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) based on the QualNet simulation. Moreover, the performance of these routing protocols will be measured based on the throughput, delay, average jitter and energy consumption metrics. The present paper shows that the routing information protocols (RIP) have better evaluation performance compared to DSR in the scenario.
