QoS Routing by Ad-Hoc on Demand Vector Routing Protocol for MANET
A Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is a collection of mobile nodes that form a wireless network without the use of a fixed infrastructure or centralized administration, and every node acts as a host as well as a router. The topology of an ad hoc network changes frequently and unpredictably. Considering the limited bandwidth and battery power, finding routes that satisfy the bandwidth constraint of applications is a significant challenge. Ad hoc On-demand Distance Vector routing (AODV) is an on-demand routing protocol that only provides best-effort routes. In this paper, the authors propose the QS-AODV protocol which is based on AODV and creates routes according to the QoS requirements of the applications.
