Wireless networks have become increasingly popular. They can provide mobile users with ubiquitous communication capability and information access regardless of locations. In this paper, we evaluate the heterogeneous environments of wireless mobile ad-hoc networks by simulations. For simulations, we used ns-3 network simulator considering Ad hoc On demand Distance Vector (AODV) and Optimized Link State Routing (OLSR) routing protocols. We evaluate the MANET performance considering random waypoint mobility models for different number of nodes, different area sizes and different maximum speed of mobility, by sending multi-flow traffic in the network. The evaluation results show that OLSR has better performance than AODV protocol for smaller area and AODV has better performance when number of nodes is 30.
