Summary:
With the continuing advances in computing and wireless technologies, mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) are expected to become an indispensable part of the computing environment in the near future. Wireless devices are constantly growing in computing speed, memory, communication capabilities and features, while shrinking in weight and size. With this growth and the proliferation of these devices in every aspect of society, the need for such devices to communicate in a seamless manner is becoming increasingly essential. Multiple routing protocols have been developed for MANETs [51]. As MANETs gain popularity, their need to support real time and multimedia applications is growing as well. Such applications have stringent quality of service (QoS) requirements such as bandwidth, delay, and delay fitter. Design and development of routing algorithms with QoS support is experiencing increased research interest. Several approaches which propose various routing algorithms with QoS support for MANETs have been presented in research. This dissertation addresses the issues and challenges of QoS routing in MANETS and presents three new protocols which provide QoS support for this environment. First, a brief classification of existing QoS routing algorithms is provided. Then, the three new protocols for QoS routing support in MANETs are presented. These protocols focus on resource reservation for QoS provisioning in TDMA-based MANETs. The first protocol improves QoS support by eliminating racing conditions during multiple reservations of QoS paths. The second protocol is a new protocol for resource reservation for QoS support in TDMA-based MANETs using directional antennas. The last protocol provides dynamic range resource reservation for QoS support in MANETs and represents an extension of the previous protocols.
