In this paper, a quality of service (QoS) multicast routing protocol in mobile ad hoc networks (MANET) using directional antennas has been presented. Many important applications, such as audio/video conferencing, require the quality of service guarantee. Directional antenna technology provides the capability for considerable increase in spatial reuse, which increases the efficiency of communication. This paper studies TDMA-based timeslot allocation and directional antennas, and presents an effective algorithm for calculating bandwidth of a multicast tree. We also propose a novel DSR-based QoS multicasting routing agrotithm. The simulation result shows the performance of this routing protocol in terms of call success rate.
