Abstract The issue of providing Quality of Service (QoS) guarantees in an Ad hoc wireless network is a very challenging problem. In this paper, we make the following contributions:(i) analytically derive bounds for the end-to-end call acceptance rate using existing queueing theory methods,(ii) study the impact of the routing scheme on the end-to-end call acceptance rate, and (iii) propose a differentiated services scheme for deterministically providing QoS guarantees. Unlike the existing studies which analyze the transport capacity, we focus on ...
