A Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) consists of a group of mobile nodes and it enables communications between participating nodes without the burden of any base stations. To increase the capacity of wireless network, multiple transceivers can be used. Multiple transceivers increase the cost of the equipment. So generally for data transmissions, a single transceiver is used in each node. But single transceiver is difficult to implement in multichannel environment. This problem can be solved by Ad-hoc Multichannel Negotiation Protocol (AMNP). For improving reliability, further Reliable Broadcast Algorithm (RBA) is introduced. Simulation analysis in NS-2 based on the combination of AMNP - RBA gives comparatively a better performance.
