Bandwidth Estimation to Provide QoS Routing in MANET

In Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs), the provision of Quality of Service (QoS) guarantees is much more challenging than in wire line networks, mainly due to node mobility, multi-hop communications, contention for channel access, and a lack of central coordination. QoS guarantees are required by most multimedia and other time- or error-sensitive applications. The difficulties in the provision of such guarantees have limited the usefulness of MANETs. However, in the last decade, much research attention has focused on providing QoS assurances in MANET protocols. The QoS routing protocol is an integral part of any QoS solution.
