In this paper, we analyze the advantages and disadvantages of the proactive QoS routing in ad-hoc networks. We discuss how to support bandwidth QoS routing in OLSR (Optimized Link State Protocol), a best-effort proactive MANET routing protocol. Using OPNET, we simulate the algorithm, exploring both traditional routing protocol performance metrics and QoS-specific metrics. Our analysis of the simulation results shows that the additional message overhead generated by the proactive QoS routing have a negative impact on the performance of the routing protocol. Given the negative results, we identified research areas that would be worthwhile investigating in order to obtain better performance results.
