A Mobile Ad hoc Network (MANETs) is a group of wireless mobile terminals, which cooperate together by routing packets to each other on a temporary network. MANETs are attracting attention for their potential use in several fields such as collaborative computing and communications in indoor areas. Considering mobility of the terminals, routing is a key process for operation of MANETs. In this paper, we analyze the performance of Optimized Link State Routing (OLSR) protocol in an indoor environment considering different scenarios for horizontal and vertical topologies. We evaluate the scenarios based on delay and jitter metrics. The experimental results show that for vertical topology the performance is affected more by mobility and number of hops, in comparison with the horizontal topology.
