In Ad hoc network is a network with group of nodes communicates each other without specific central server support. A wide range of research is carrying out in the field of Ad hoc networks. Routing is one of the major point to concentrate on the research, however, collisions among the nodes also creates a major problem. Hence it is required to create efficient channel allocation mechanisms for Ad hoc networks in MAC. In this paper, we propose a new priority based QoS design for the Mobile Ad hoc Networks (MANETs) to achieve the better performance in terms of efficient bandwidth utilization, less collision rate with prioritized data transmission among the nodes.
