Today, Due to mobility wireless network have a heavy demand especially for wireless Ad-Hoc network. In Ad-Hoc network a group of wireless mobile nodes cooperate with each other by routing of packets. So it is necessary to design a wireless network which gives the best performance by suitable protocol selection and path routing. The selection of protocol should be suitable in terms of data integrity as well as data delivery. Hence performance evaluation of protocol is a major issue before selection of a routing protocol. In this paper our aim is to analyse the performance matrices including end to end delay, jitter, packet loss and packet delivery fraction of multi hop network by simulation. Performance evaluation of wireless ad hoc network routing protocols specially Ad-hoc On Demand Distance Vector (AODV), Optimized Link State Routing (OLSR), Destination Sequenced Distance Vector (DSDV) have been completed using NS-3 Simulator. After simulation we have found that OLSR routing protocol gives the best result comparison to AODV and DSDV in large and dense network.
