Abstract: Mobile ad hoc network is an infrastructure less wireless multi hop network with heterogeneous mobile nodes dispersed in wireless communication zone. MANET has different application in different fields, due to its distributed, adaptive and self-formation capabilities. Providing quality of service communication is one of the important considerable issue in MANET. One of the major facto to achieve the QoS communicates is efficient MAC protocol. This paper defines a adaptive – QoS MAC protocol (AQMP) for IEEE 802.11 based MANET. AQMP protocol improve the QoS based on majorly four considerations I). Prioritize the nodes based on their network load, II). Assignment of nodes for medium access, III). Prioritize the traffic based on their sensitivity, and IV). Assignment of MAC settings to prioritized traffic. Performance results indicates that proposed MAC protocol out perform in comparison with existing adaptive MAC protocols.
