Abstract: In ad hoc network where nodes both act as router and host, some protocols are implemented like DSDV (Destination Sequence Distance Vector). It is an extension of bellman-ford routing algorithms, which helps in communication between nodes in ad hoc networks. But the challenge lies with reliable communication between nodes. In this paper the DSDV performance analysis is done which also nullifies the looping problem faced by its previous version, that is, distance vector routing algorithms.
