Abstract: - A wireless ad hoc network is a collection of mobile nodes that dynamically form a temporary network and communicate with each other without any physical networking infrastructure . Many real time applications have quality of Service (QoS) requirements like bandwidth, end-to-end delay and jitter. So,to support these applications it is important to have QoS mechanism. In this paper we propose a bandwidth-aware routing protocol, which is based on the reactive ad-hoc distance vector (AODV) routing protocol therefore we named it BA-AODV protocol. In this Protocol, we include one of the important issue of ad hoc networks which is the bandwidth where the bandwidth-aware route discovery process discover a route in which each intermediate node has bandwidth greater than the required bandwidth. We compare our proposed bandwidth-aware AODV routing (BA-AODV) protocol to the existing traditional AODV routing protocol. The simulation results show the effectiveness and correctness of our proposed method in terms of increased network load in the scenarios consisting of mobile nodes as well as static nodes.
