We present the design, implementation, and evaluation of INSIGNIA, an IP-based quality of service framework that supports adaptive services in mobile ad hoc networks. The framework is based on an in-band signaling and soft-state resource management approach that is well suited to supporting mobility and end-to-end quality of service in highly dynamic environments where the network topology, node connectivity, and end-to-end quality of service are time varying. Architecturally INSIGNIA is

We evaluate the framework, paying particular attention to the performance of the in-band signaling system, which helps counter time-varying network dynamics in support of the delivery of adaptive services. Our results show the benefit of our framework under diverse mobility, traffic, and channel conditions.
