A mobile agent based on-demand quality of service (QoS) unicast routing scheme for supporting multimedia applications is proposed that considers bandwidth, delay and packet loss as QoS metrics for feasible path computation. A mobile agent is employed to find multiple QoS paths and select a best path among them to preserve resources so as to increase call success ratio and network bandwidth utilisation as well as adapt to network dynamics. The scheme is simulated in various network scenarios (sparse and dense networks) to verify performance and operation effectiveness, and compared with RSVP-based QoS routing by using an internet routing protocol. The results demonstrate significant improvements in call success ratio and network bandwidth utilisation compared with RSVP-based QoS routing, both in case of sparse and dense networks. Benefits of the agent-based scheme are adaptability, flexibility, and support for component-based software engineering features such as software reuse, customisation and maintainability.
