Executive Summary

Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANET), which comprise of mobile nodes connected wirelessly, are emerging as a very important technology for future generation of wireless mobile and ubiquitous computing. MANETs are being used in numerous application domains from emergency rescue and relief to wireless sensor networks. To support real-time communications (such as audio and video) over MANETs, new Quality of Service (QoS) provisioning mechanisms need to be developed. There are many challenges in QoS provisioning for MANETs such as dynamically changing topology, wireless capacity limitations, heterogeneous network environment, limited battery power etc.
