A Novel QoS in Node-Disjoint Routing for Ad Hoc Networks
Ad hoc network (MANET) is a collection of mobile nodes that can communicate with each other without using any fixed infrastructure. To support multimedia applications MANETs require an efficient routing protocol and Quality of Service (QoS) mechanism. Node-Disjoint Multipath Routing Protocol (NDMR) is a practical protocol in MANETs: it reduces routing overhead dramatically and achieves multiple node-disjoint routing paths. QoS support in MANETs is an important issue as best-effort routing is not efficient for supporting multimedia applications. This paper presents a novel adaptation of NDMR: QoS enabled NDMR, which provides QoS support for MANETS. This paper also introduces the limitation of NDMR and shows the performance comparisons.
