Ant Colony Based Routing for Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks Towards Improved Quality of Services
Source: Journal of Computing
Mobile Ad Hoc NETwork (MANET) is a dynamic multihop wireless network which is established by a set of mobile nodes on a shared wireless channel. One of the major issues in MANET is routing due to the mobility of the nodes. Routing means the act of moving information across an internet work from a source to a destination. When it comes to MANET, the complexity increases due to various characteristics like dynamic topology, time varying QoS requirements, limited resources, energy, etc. QoS routing plays an important role for providing QoS in wireless ad hoc networks. The biggest challenge in this kind of networks is to find a path between the communication end points satisfying user's QoS requirement.
