Applications like banking, interactive multimedia, movie on demand, VOIP, etc., are delay sensitive by nature. The QoS given to users will be affected by network delay, which can be mitigated by employing QoS routing and efficient data transfer. To build routing table, normal AODV routing uses flooding technique, which will not consider QoS requirements. Hence QoS based routing which is stable for the entire application is essential, which understands the dynamic nature of the MANET and establishes the required route, in minimum possible time. We have proposed an intelligent routing protocol based ECA model and AODV for establishing QoS route.
The simulation results shows that the ECA model gives better results, while considering the local connectivity time, source to destination connectivity time, number of data packets successfully delivered to the destination, local and global error correction time, compared to AODV.
