A Survey on Routing Protocols and QoS in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs)


Objective: MANET is a collection of wireless mobile devices, mobility and scalable network. These key details are behind the fame of MANETs. A good survey is done on QoS and routing protocols. This study presents merits and demerits of some of the QoS routing protocols. Also, a thorough investigation has been carried out on the current problems and feature trials that are in the field of MANETs. Findings: Every routing protocol must provide Quality of Service (QoS): With intent to improve bandwidth, delay, jitter, and energy consumption. The purpose of any ad-hoc network routing protocol is to meet these challenges. Therefore, it becomes an essential parameter for MANETs to develop a proficient routing and QoS procedures. Some QoS routing-protocols are proposed newly by various characteristics. A similar survey is done on QoS and routing protocols. It has been observed that Maximizing accuracy, Minimizing overhead, Maintaining route, Reserving resources, reducing power utilization, reliability are unsolved issues. Applications: The designing of these routing protocols is an interesting task because of mobility, the dynamic behavior of the Mobile Ad-hoc Networks. This study is helpful for designing new routing protocols with improved QoS in MANETs.
