In Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) congestion occurs due to the packet loss and it can be successfully reduced by involving congestion control scheme which includes routing algorithm and a flow control at the network layer. In this paper, the authors propose to agent based congestion control technique for MANETs. In their technique, the information about network congestion is collected and distributed by Mobile Agents (MA). A mobile agent based congestion control AODV routing protocol is proposed to avoid congestion in ad hoc network.
