Ultra-wideband (UWB) wireless communication is a promising spread-spectrum technology that supports very high data rates and provides precise position information of mobile users. In this paper, we present a position-based quality-of-service (QoS) routing scheme for UWB mobile ad hoc networks. The scheme applies call admission control and temporary bandwidth reservation for discovered routes, taking into consideration the medium access control interactions. Via cross-layer design, it exploits UWB advantages at the network layer by using the position information in routing and bandwidth reservation and by supporting the multirate capability. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed routing scheme is effective in end-to-end QoS support.
