Ad-hoc routing protocols play a crucial role in enabling efficient communication in dynamic and self-organizing wireless networks. In this paper, we present a performance analysis of three prominent ad-hoc routing protocols: Optimized Link State Routing protocol (OLSR), Chain branch leaf (CBL) and Chain branch leaf gateway (CBL-G). Our study focuses on evaluating these protocols in terms of network load management and throughput. Our findings reveal significant differences among the evaluated protocols. CBL and CBL-G demonstrate effective network load management and achieve the highest throughput among the evaluated protocols. The comparative analysis presented in this paper provides valuable insights for selecting appropriate ad-hoc routing protocols based on specific performance requirements in dynamic wireless networks. The results emphasize the effectiveness of CBL and CBL-G in managing network load and achieving high throughput. This research contributes to the existing body of knowledge on ad-hoc routing protocols and their suitability for dynamic wireless networks.
