Real time multicast applications in mobile ad-hoc network brings forward added advantages in wireless network. The fragile and mobile environment of ad-hoc network produces the need of bandwidth allocation for real time applications. Reliability is also an important factor in multicasting in Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs), as it confirms eventual delivery of all the data to all the group members, without enforcing any particular delivery order in EEMCCP. In the first phase of this paper, the authors design an 'Ant agent-resource allocation' technique for reserving bandwidth for real-time multicast applications.
