One of new domains where the D2D communication can be applied is the Public Protection and Disaster Relief (PPDR) and National Security and Public Safety (NSPS) services. The key requirement for employing the PPDR and NSPS services is to provide the access to the communication services even if cellular network is highly overloaded or become fully dysfunctional due to some public disaster or emergency situations. In such case, the most important task is to share emergency information between citizens even when most of them do not have infrastructural connectivity. Since D2D is by default a single-hop communication, it is crucial to find the mechanism how to transmit any data via randomly assembled network even for longer distances. Therefore, this paper focuses on the utilization of MANET routing protocols for D2D communication in case that the connection to the cellular network is down. The selected routing protocols used in MANET are described and their suitability is verified in the simulation environment Network Simulator 3 (NS-3).
