Wireless ad-hoc networks have recently emerged as a premier research topic. To support QoS routing in MANET (Mobile Ad hoc NETworks) the authors propose a Cluster-Based Multi-hop Multipath Routing in MANET (CBMMRP). It distributes traffic among diverse multiple paths to avoid congestion, which optimizes bandwidth using and improves the sharing rate of channel. It uses clustering's hierarchical structure diverse to decrease routing control overhead and improve the networks scalability. Here, they compare CBMMRP and a multipath algorithm named Split Multipath Routing (SMR) with plane structure.
