Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is nothing but group of radio devices communicating with each other without using any physical infrastructure. MANET is widely used in day-to-day life applications, hence it is required that such network should perform efficiently. Efficiency of MANET is mainly depends on use of routing protocols. The efficiency of routing protocol is evaluated in terms of different Quality of Service (QoS) metrics. Achieving good QoS in MANET is more challenging as compared to wired networks due to mobile network, limited battery and no centralized control.
