Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs) have evolved in the last years into standards in the communication world. By definition, they do not need any network infrastructure to ensure communication between the nodes. Therefore, they are dealing with new challenges in the context of ad hoc routing. This paper deals with our new implementation of the routing protocol Dynamic MANET On Demand (DYMO). DYMO offers adaptation to changing network topology and determines unicast routes between nodes within the network on demand. We developed a simulation model of DYMO for the network simulation environment OMNeT++. Based on the developed model, we performed several simulation experiments to analyze its performance. The implementation of DYMO and the results of the simulation experiments are described in this report.
