Mobile Ad-hoc Networks (MANETs) is a decentralized, self-configure autonomous network having no fixed infrastructure. It consists of a mobile node that can move freely. In MANETs, there is no centralized control and authority system. Routing protocols enable the discovery of routes among different nodes and facilitate communication within the networks and minimized overhead and network consumption. For this purpose, different routing protocols can be used. These protocols can be hybrid, proactive, and reactive. The Optimized Link State Routing (OLSR) is a proactive routing protocol that is widely used in MANETs.  This research paper presents the performance of the OLSR protocol for two different mobility models which are the Random Waypoint Mobility Model (RWMM) and the Random Based Mobility Model (RBMM). In this paper, we have evaluated the performance of OLSR protocols for Constant Bit Ratio (CBR), Packet Delivery Ratio (PDR), Packet Drop Ratio (PDR), End-to-End Delay (EED), Data Packet Delivered (DPD), Routing Overhead Normalization (RON) and Average Throughput Ratio (ATR) based on RWMM and RBMM mobility models.
