A wireless network such as mobile ad-hoc network consists of a collection of mobile nodes where the communication is not limited to a certain region. The network is a infrastructure less or without central administration, its a kind of very flexible network. Where nodes are freely moving and its difficult to locate the path between two nodes. Mobile ad-hoc network are suitable for temporary communication links. Therefore it is one of the big challenge to locate a path between communication end nodes. where as in order to fulfil this task suitable routing protocol is needed. This paper presents a solution for discovering path between source & destination nodes in the mobile-ad hoc network. And the protocol is based on swarm intelligence which especially on ant colony metaphor. Termite is an innovative algorithm for routing in communication network, it is well known swarm intelligence algorithm. Termite is an adaptive, distributed, mobile agents based algorithm which enables the swarm to become more intelligent & serve the purpose. Some of parameters which is used to examine are packet delays, throughtpu, Shows better results of throughput as compared to other existing algorithm. so termite algorithm is promising for routing of data in communication network.
