Available Bandwidth Estimation for IEEE 802.11-based Ad Hoc networks

Abstract : By nature, IEEE 802.11-based mobile ad hoc networks do not dispose of any reliable mechanism for quality of service. Therefore, research in this field has received much attention these last years. However, the estimation of the available resources still represents one of the main issues when designing a QoS solution. In this paper, we propose an improved mechanism to estimate the available bandwidth in IEEE 802.11-based ad hoc networks. Through simulations, we compare the accuracy of the proposed estimation to the estimations performed by some state-of-the-art QoS protocols, like for instance, BRuIT, AAC and QoS-AODV.
