Ad Hoc Networks, Quality of Service, Dynamic Source Routing, ACO and ADSR
Quality of Service (QoS) support for Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs) is an exigent task due to dynamic topology and limited resource. To support QoS, the link state information such as delay, bandwidth, jitter, cost, error rate and node energy in the network should be available and manageable. The focus of this paper is extending the scope to QoS routing procedure, to inform the source about QoS available to any destination in the wireless network. However, existing QoS routing solutions were dealt with only one or two of the QoS parameters. It is important that MANETs should provide QoS support routing, such as acceptable delay, jitter and energy in the case of multimedia and real time applications. This paper proposes a QoS Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) protocol using Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) called Ant DSR (ADSR).The performance of DSR and ADSR are analyzed using network simulator-2. ADSR produces better results than the existing DSR in terms of delay, energy, jitter and throughput.
