Abstract: Protocol development in Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANET) has been a hot topic for many years, yet the performance exhibited from recent deployments is still not optimal and not suitable for large scale practical use. Stability of transmission is a critical aspect in mobile ad hoc networks, as by improving the stability of end-to-end transmission, the network could deliver more consistent service and achieve efficiency gains. We propose a protocol architecture which aims to improve the stability of transmission inside MANET using limited additional information based on the location of wireless nodes. The draft architecture and the initial progress in this project are also presented in this paper.
