A Mobile Ad-hoc Network (MANET) is a collection of wireless mobile nodes forming a temporary network without using any centralized access point, infrastructure, or centralized administration. Data transmission between two nodes in MANET's may be requires multiple hops as the nodes transmission range is limited. Mobility of the different nodes makes the situation even more complicated. Multiple routing protocols especially for these conditions have been developed during the last few years, to find optimized routes from a source to some destination. Ad-hoc network suffer from the lot of issues and congestion and security are the major issues which lead to severe degradation of network throughput and increases the routing overheads. This paper presents Optimized AODV which the modified version Enhance local repair AODV by improving its Route Error message format. The result shows that OAODV performs better in terms of routing overhead and end to end delay than AODV. The simulation is done through network simulator ns2 gives a detailed comparison of research on AODV. Open research direction is also discussed to serve as a starting point to protocol design and evaluation
