Medium Access Control and Quality-of-Service Routing for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks
December 31, 2001
The last topic is Quality-of-Service routing. An efficient distributed scheme is developed to calculate the end-to-end bandwidth of a route. By incorporating this scheme with the AODV protocol, we developed an on-demand QoS routing protocol which can support CBR sessions by establishing QoS routes with reserved bandwidth. It repairs a route when it breaks.Load balancing and route redundancy are also achieved. It is applicable for small networks or short routes under relatively low mobility.
