Quality of Service (QoS) provision is required for MANETs in recent years to support the rapid growth of video in mobile traffic. In spite of numerous QoS routing protocols, litter literature, it is observed, discusses about the QoS balancing model with several QoS metrics considered simultaneously, which is realistic in real applications, due to various units and attributes of QoS metrics. A new model, denoted by SAW-AHP, which is a combination of Simple Additive Weighting (SAW) and Analytic Hierarchical Process (AHP), is proposed in this paper to balance the competing QoS metrics. Despite of different units and attributes of diverse QoS metrics, SAW-AHP is able to rank the alternative routing protocols reliably and consistently by considering the relative preference of QoS metrics which is neglected by much literature.
