A mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is composed of mobile nodes, which do not have any fixed wired communication infrastructure. This paper proposes a protocol called “Delay, Jitter, Bandwidth, Cost, Power and Hop count Constraints Routing Protocol with Mobility Prediction for Mobile Ad hoc Network using Self Healing and Optimizing Routing Technique (QPHMP-SHORT)”. It is a multiple constraints routing protocol with self healing technique for route discovery to select a best routing path among multiple paths between a source and a destination as to increase packet delivery ratio, reliability and efficiency of mobile communication. QPHMP-SHORT considers the cost incurred in channel acquisition and the incremental cost proportional to the size of the packet. It collects the residual battery power of each node for each path; selects multiple paths, which have nodes with good battery power for transmission to satisfy the power constraint. QPHMP-SHORT uses Self-Healing and Optimizing Routing Technique (SHORT) to select a shortest best path among multiple selected paths by applying hops count constraint. It also uses the mobility prediction formula to find the stability of a link between two nodes.
