Abstract: IQuality of Service routing is constructing a route with enough resources for the QoS parameters. The routing protocols play a crucial part in providing quality service for Wireless Mesh Network (WMN). In this paper, the existing AODV protocol is enhanced to provide QoS in routing the packets as it may lead to node failure, congestion due to loss of energy and increased queue length. In the route construction process, initially the protocol focus on selecting a best forwarding node based on the node’s maximum net energy. Second, AODV is enhanced to construct a route by selecting a forwarding neighbor based on minimum queue length. Finally, the EEQ-AODV (Efficient Energy and Queue AODV) protocol selects the efficient path based on energy and queue length factors. The above mentioned tasks have been analyzed in Grid and Triangular Mesh topologies of Hybrid WMN architecture by considering the metrics Packet Delivery Ratio(PDR), dropped packets, average end-end delay, routing overhead and average throughput using NS-2. EEQ-AODV protocol is analyzed with the metrics energy consumed/packet and lifetime of the network.
