An Efficient Quality of Service Based Routing Protocol for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks
Source: Islamic University
Ad-hoc network is set up with multiple wireless devices without any infrastructure. Its employment is favored in many environments. Quality of Service (QoS) is one of the main issues for any network and due to bandwidth constraint and dynamic topology of mobile ad hoc networks, supporting Quality of Service (QoS) is extremely a challenging task. It is modeled as a multi-layer problem and is considered in both Medium Access Control (MAC) and routing layers for ad hoc networks. Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) routing protocol is one of the most used and popular reactive routing protocols in ad-hoc networks. This paper proposed a new protocol 'QoS based AODV' (QAODV) which is a modified version of AODV.
