This report documents an extensive simulation based study of MANET broadcast protocols, and the development of a framework which automates the simulation process.
Four broadcast protocols as well as two generic protocol extensions are simulated in ns2. From the simulation results it is determined that broadcasting via OLSR''s MPRs yields the best overall performance. Also, it is determined that enforcing jitter in data traffic improves the delivery rate.
The framework is applied to conduct the simulations in this work, and significantly redices the manual work required, from specification of abstract scenario parameters to visualisation of simulation results.
