A Design for Video Streaming Using Multipath Routing in MANET
Mobile Ad hoc Networks community provides us with a wealth of technologies that enable the source and the destination nodes to route the data through neighbouring nodes. Fast resources discovery and Quality of Service are key determinants for efficient multimedia transmission in MANET. In this paper, the technique of Multipath Routing using AOMDV routing protocol used for multimedia data transmission in MANET. Multi-path routing represents a routing method for wireless mobile ad hoc networks. Ad Hoc On-demand Multipath Distance Vector protocol is used to choose the multiple alternative paths for multicasting multimedia data in MANET, based on the distortion metric. The multimedia data further transferred to one and two hop neighbours. The ability of creating multiple routes from the source to a destination is used to provide alternative route. When primary route fails to deliver the packets in some way, the alternative route is used for maintaining connection establishment for route the data from source to destination. Multipath routing using AOMDV achieves lower average end-to-end delay, high video data delivery, lower routing overhead and packet loss rate, quality of service.
