The multimedia applications such as audio, video transmission in Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) requires that the path in which such data transmits must be delay sensitive, reliable and energy efficient. An existing MANET routing protocol Ad Hoc On demand Multipath Distance Vector (AOMDV) fails to perform well in terms of QoS metrics such as delay, jitter, packet delivery ratio (PDR) etc., where there is high mobility and heavy traffic. The paths which are stored in the Routing table are not reliable and energy efficient. It is possible to modify the route discovery of AODV so that more than one node disjoint, link reliable and energy efficient paths are stored in the routing table. The proposed protocol Multiconstrained and Multipath QoS Aware Routing Protocol (MMQARP) is novel, which takes care of QoS parameters dynamically and simultaneously along with path finding, so that only link reliable, energy efficient paths are available for data transmission. The extensive simulation study shows that the proposed protocol performs better in terms of PDR, delay and jitter compared to AOMDV protocol.
