A mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is a kind of Wireless ad hoc network. The nature of Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks are mobile, wireless and battery powered. MANET is an infrastructure-less network of mobile devices that?s connected without wires. Each mobile node can move to any other network at any time. So the topology of the MANET changes frequently. Currently, most of the MANET research is based on improving data routing. A MANET data communication must include set of evaluation parameters in terms of data overhead, increasing packet delivery ratio, reducing packet loss and improve throughput. In existing scheme Protected Reliable Routing (PRR) ensures security in all expected parameters. For better routing, Artificial Bee Colony (ABC) Algorithm is proposed in this paper.
