Flow control in Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) encounters more challenges than flow control in conventional wired networks, such as channel bandwidth variation, medium contention, and frequent re-routing. Without proper flow control, serious network performance degradation in MANETs has been reported in recent studies. In this paper, the authors introduce a distributed bottleneck flow control technique in MANETs. The proposed scheme uses a distributed flow control mechanism that has been used in both bottleneck flow control and bandwidth balancing in Distributed-Queue-Dual-Bus (DQDB) in wired networks.
