Abstract
This paper proposes an Ad-hoc QoS architecture, using as basis some concepts from SWAN, extending it to fulfill our requirements. It also proposes the modules required in the network elements and its interaction to provide optimized QoS in the ad-hoc network and integration between both networks. We also present the overall integration QoS signaling protocol and the differentiation mechanisms to address end-to-end QoS for real-time multimedia applications. Furthermore, the proposed solution addresses the use of multipath routing in order to provide load balancing and increased network reliability.
