For last few years, Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs) have attracted a great interest in case of wireless and multimedia technologies. Infrastructure less nature of MANETs makes Quality of Service (QoS) provisioning very challenging and important research aspect. To find a QoS constrained route from source to destination, the authors should be able to effectively determine the available resources throughout the route. The routing protocol is the most integral part of any type of QoS provisioning. It has to decide which route is able to fulfill the requirement of the desired QoS for specified application. In this paper, modification has been proposed in the existing MANET protocols to get the information about total path bandwidth for delay sensitive applications.
