In this paper, in order to fulfill real-time traffic requirements in ad hoc networks, a novel and effective single phase admission control (SPAC) scheme for QoS-routing protocols has been proposed. The SPAC scheme is based on the ad hoc on-demand distance vector (AODV) protocol with slight modifications of control packets; network congestions are avoided by a simple and precise admission control that blocks most of the overloading flow requests in the route-discovery process. System simulations show that the SPAC scheme and its performance is comparable to the contention-aware admission control protocol (CACP)-Multihop performance in all respects; the SPAC scheme is also simpler. As compared to a QoS-aware routing protocol employing either "listen" or "hello" scheme, the SPAC protocol offers higher throughput and remarkably less end-to-end delays under heavy loads.
