"Ad hoc networks have characteristics such as flexibility, fast and easy deployment, and robustness which make them an interesting technology for various applications. Ad hoc networks are considered as the most promising terminal networks in future mobile communications. Providing sufficient bandwidth and time delay for multimedia applications in ad hoc networks is an urgent task because of the rising popularity of multimedia applications and potential commercial usage of ad hoc networks. Providing QoS (Quality of Service) guarantee is a critical and challenging problem in ad hoc networks because of multihop, mutual radio interference and node mobility."
