Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs) have been attracting significant attention due to their promising technology. A MANETs consists of wireless nodes communicating without the need for a centralized administration. With the expanding scope of applications of MANETs, the need to support Quality-of-Service (QoS) in these networks is becoming essential. The resource limitations and variability make QoS support a very complex process. Different applications have different QoS parameters in terms of end-to-end performance, such as bandwidth, delay, probability of packet loss, and delay variance (jitter).
