In this paper, a representative set of QoS models and QoS-aware on-demand routing protocols are reviewed with emphasis on their ability to support QoS in mobile ad-hoc networks (MANETs) possibly used in WSNs. In particular IntServ, DiffServ, FQMM, and SWAN QoS models are reviewed followed by different QoS-aware on-demand routings in MANETs from different perspectives such as the challenges, classifications, algorithmic aspects in QoS provisions. Tradeoff in providing support to real time (RT) and best effort (BE) traffic is highlighted. Finally, a detailed and comprehensive comparison table is provided for better understanding of QoS provision in MANETs.
