Considering the comfortably establishing ad hoc networks, the use of this type of network is increasing day to day. On the other side, it is predicted that using multimedia applications will be more public in these network. Supporting real-time traffic in Ad hoc networks is one of the interesting QoS (Quality of Service) issues. However, the unique characteristics of ad hoc networks impose great challenges on the design of such QoS-aware protocols. First, since an ad hoc network has no centralized control, only local information is available to any node in the network. Therefore, QoS-aware protocols for ad hoc networks must use distributed algorithms and not rely on-global information.
