Abstract: Mobile ad hoc networks, abbreviated to MANETs are covering various application fields with the significant advancements in wireless networks. In the recent past, the multimedia transmission over such networks has drawn the attention from researchers and scientists. In wireless medium, it is always advantageous to go for multicast routing than unicast routing. This paper focuses on the performance analysis of a multicast routing protocol, multicast ad hoc on-demand distance vector (MAODV), and its modified version QoS-MAODV, to support multimedia transmission over ad hoc environments.
Keywords: MANET, MAODV, mobile ad hoc network, multimedia, VoIP transmission, video transmission.
