Ad hoc network (MANET) is a collection of mobile nodes that can communicate with each other without using any fixed infrastructure. To support multimedia applications such as video and voice MANETs require an efficient routing protocol and quality of service (QoS) mechanism. Node-Disjoint Multipath Routing Protocol (NDMR) is a practical protocol in MANETs: it reduces routing overhead dramatically and achieves multiple node-disjoint routing paths. QoS support in MANETs is an important issue as

This enhancement allows for the intelligent selection of node-disjoint routes based on network conditions, thus fulfilling the QoS requirements of Service Level Agreements (SLAs). Node-disjoint multipath routing protocol (NDMR) Node-disjoint multipath routing protocol (NDMR) is a new protocol developed by Xuefei Li [5], modifying and extending AODV to enable the path accumulation feature of DSR in route request packets. It can efficiently QOS IN NODE-DISJOINT ROUTING FOR AD HOC NETWORKS 75
