A Mobile Ad hoc Network (MANET) is a collection of wireless mobile terminals that are able to dynamically form a temporary network without any aid from fixed infrastructure or centralized administration. In recent years, MANETs are continuing to attract the attention for their potential use in several fields such as military activities, rescue operations and time-critical applications. In this paper, we present the implementation and analysis of our implemented wireless multi-hop network testbed considering the Optimized Link State Routing (OLSR) protocol for wireless multi-hop networking. We investigate the effect of mobility and topology changing in MANET. We study the impact of best-effort traffic for non line of sight communication. In this work, we consider three models: stationary, mobility and non line of sight communication models. We assess the performance of our testbed in terms of throughput and packet loss. From the experimental results, we found that OLSR has not a good performance when the relay node is moving. Also, the performance deteriorates when the CBR is higher.
