Efficient Bandwidth in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks Using Genetic Algorithm
Most of the existing routing protocols are designed primarily to carry best effort traffic and only concerned with shortest path routing. Little attention is paid to the issues related to the Quality of Services (QoS) requirement of a route. In this paper, the authors will consider the problem of searching for a route satisfying the bandwidth requirement in a mobile ad-hoc network. Unlike in a wired network, where the available bandwidth of a route is simply the minimum bandwidth of the links along the route, the calculation of the available bandwidth of a route in a mobile ad-hoc network has been proved to be complete.
