A Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is a dynamically formed self-configured network by an autonomous system of mobile nodes connected by wireless links. With the advancements of wireless technology, the necessity of Quality of Service (QoS) is increasing rapidly. Developing QoS constraint routing protocol for MANETs is still a challenging task. As the nodes are free to move randomly, most routing protocols for MANETs are susceptible to node mobility. As routing protocol has to decide which route is

This paper is based on design of such a kind of proposed MANET algorithm that will estimate the available bandwidth throughout the path by assigning priority. Based on available bandwidth, packets are transferred from source to destination of the applications in queue based on priority. The proposed algorithm is implemented and simulated using NS-2 simulator. Results of our approach show that new protocol can significantly reduce overheads and decrease overall end-to-end delay.
