Interference is one of the major degrading factors of Mobile Ad Hoc NETworks (MANET). Since, MANET transmits over the single wireless channel; packets of the same flow interfere with each other greatly. This mutual interference causes the bottleneck over the network. Further, predicting interference accurately around a transmitter or receiver is a complicated task. As a solution to these problems, in this paper, the authors propose an interference reduction technique for MANET using mathematical prediction filters. The technique used Hidden Markov Model (HMM) for predicting the interference of the nodes. Initial transmission power is set by comparing received signal power with minimum and maximum values.
