The problem of Quality of Service (QoS) routing for Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) possesses several challenges that must be addressed. To select the most optimal route from source to destination, one has to choose from a set of routes with the corresponding quality of connectivity and resources. A rationale for multiple routes is presented. The authors argued that QoS routing protocol should exploit the rich non-disjoint node connectivity over disjoint paths to improve the Source to Target (S-T) connectivity lifetime in a MANET. Non-Disjoint Multiple Routes Discovery (NDMRD) protocol is proposed as a method of accumulating these routes, capturing QoS parameters and disseminates them appropriately.
