QoS Aware Hierarchical Multi-hop Routing Protocols in MANETs
Ad hoc wireless networks are multi-hop networks that are dynamic, and are formed by a group of nodes which are mobile in nature, on a shared wireless links. Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is a collection of autonomous nodes that communicate with each other by forming a multi hop radio network. The analysis and design of routing protocols is a significant issue in ad-hoc wireless networks. Since the previously proposed routing algorithms have not considered the multi-hop flow with an end-to-end scenario, and had shown to perform well in providing blond sharing of bandwidths among the single-hop wireless flow.
