For the last several years, there has been a significant increase of interest in supporting Quality of Service (QoS) constraints in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (AHNs). AHNs include mobile nodes with limited capacities and communication resources. This specificity makes existing solutions for wired networks little suitable and a broad range of novel approaches have been studied. This paper proposes a QoS reservation mechanism for AHNs, called QSRR. The mechanism is targeted for sources requiring a bandwidth allocation.
