Abstract

Mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) are unpredictable by nature. Providing any kind of reliability for quality of service (QoS) in such networks is challenging. Quantifying available resources accurately, avoiding interference with ongoing QoS traffic and adapting to QoS violations caused by nodes' mobility are the main concerns for the design of an efficient admission control protocol in MANETs. Adaptive admission control (AAC), a novel admission control protocol which uses robust and accurate resource estimation and prediction techniques for relevant admission decisions has been proposed. Furthermore, AAC uses statistical QoS provision to counteract the QoS threatening mobility. Through simulations, we show that our proposed scheme outperforms existing approaches in terms of correctness and overall performance
