In this paper, one of the QoS models for MANETs-SWAN is studied under varying conditions to provide both quantitative and qualitative assessments of the applicability of the model in different scenarios. Results and analysis from NS-2 based simulation indicate that (i) real-time (RT) applications in SWAN-enabled mobile ad hoc networks experience low and stable delays under various traffic and mobility environment at the expense of best-effort (BE) traffic, (ii) SWAN model works compatibly with proactive as well as reactive routing protocols. A careful choice of parameters is important to balance the throughput of the BE traffic and RT traffic and QoS provisions in MANETs.
