Abstract

Multimedia applications require certain QoS guarantees to be met in order to function properly. QoS requirements for multimedia transmission include bandwidth guarantees and temporal guarantees (delay and jitter). Existing routing protocols on MANeTs are not adequate enough to deal with these necessities imposed by multimedia traffic. In this article, an adaptation of MPLS is proposed for MANeTs. M2PLS and MLDP together are employed in MANeTs to provide QoS and traffic engineering for real time multimedia traffic. These protocols are implemented and tested in the OMNeT++ network simulator. This article describes in detail the design and implementation of M2PLS and MLDP. Keywords: Multimedia traffic, MANeT, QoS, MPLS
