The evolution of wireless technologies has led to the need to provide network support for data and video applications and thus foster the development of new types of network configurations. MANETs are an important system for operations that employ network mechanisms to enable a dynamic self-configuration to challenge the routing protocols. These protocols may also be challenged because of a power failure that is more serious than the common network failures and the quality of the multimedia stream. In light of this, a new energy-efficient cross-layer routing mechanism is set out to make an improvement in the main routing protocols. This involves adding decision metrics to all network layers with QoS and QoE guarantees and energy parameters, by choosing the best path with an efficient way to use energy. The proposal has been evaluated in a network simulator which demonstrates the efficiency of increasing energy awareness and maximizing the life time of the network.
