A Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) consists of a set of mobile hosts capable that form a temporary network on the fly without using any fixed infrastructure. The nodes operate both as hosts and routers. Due to mobility of nodes, the topology of the network may change rapidly and unexpectedly, thus setting up routes that meet high reliability is very challenging issue. Hence, it is very important to find a route that can obtain highly stable routing and transmission ratio during data transmission. To address the above-mentioned problem, the authors propose a high performance scalable QoS routing protocol, which bases on the route lifetime that is obtained using Global Positioning System (GPS), the residue energy and hop count.
