Ad hoc network is spontaneous on the fly, self-adaptive network without requirements of a centralized access point or an existing infrastructure. These aspects lead the infeasibility and inconsistency for providing Quality of Services (QoS) in mobile–ad hoc network (MANET). Real-time multimedia traffic demands high degree of QoS improvements on MAC layer. This work proposes the QoS performance in a new variant of AODV routing protocol using compression and named as compressed AOMDV (AOMDVc). Proposed routing protocol uses MPEG-4 compression in order to improve routing performance on data transmission as well with different network scenarios. Evaluation of AOMDVc is done with respect to frequent changing pause-time and data packet size. Performance of the QoS parameters and network reliabilities are verified by simulation using Network simulator (NS-2). The experimental result shows how the proposed protocol improves the QoS of a network over already existing protocols.
