Discussion on Improving Quality of Service through Available Bandwidth Estimation in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks
The term bandwidth refers to the data rate that a network link or a network path can transfer. Bandwidth is one of the guarantee attribute to measure the performance of the network. Estimating accurate available bandwidth allows a node to make optimal decision before sending a packet in networks. It is therefore obvious that the available bandwidth estimation improves the Quality of Service (QoS) in wired and wireless Networks. Measuring available bandwidth in ad hoc networks is challenging issue in Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET).
