Mobile networking refers to the technology utilized to transmit speech and data between specific mobile network nodes across wireless channels. In general, "mobile" refers to the purposeful, lightweight, and portable technologies that moviegoers may carry. To enhance the MANET routing protocols, a hybrid swarm optimization model has been suggested in this study. The suggested optimization establishes the MANET network as the ideal setting. The suggested approach combines cat swarm optimization (CSO) with particle swarm optimization (PSO). MANT network also called mobile sensor network and utilizing the research's technique, the improvement mechanism (s) that could be employed to end degraded routing concerns and enhance act may be identified. Compared to both PSO and CSO, the results produced by the suggested model are the best.
