Current trends, architectures, and applications of mobile ad hoc networking

Mobile ad hoc networking is one of the more innovative and challenging areas of wireless networking, one which promises to become increasingly present in our lives. Consisting of devices that are autonomously self-organizing in networks, ad hoc networks offer a large degree of freedom at a lower cost than other networking solutions.

Assimilating the most up-to-date information on research and development activities in this rapidly growing area, Mobile Ad Hoc Networking covers physical, data link, network, and transport layers, as well as application, security, simulation, and power management issues in sensor, local area, personal, and mobile ad hoc networks. Each of the book’s sixteen chapters has been written by a top expert and discusses in-depth the most important topics in the field, including:

  • The historical evolution of mobile ad hoc networking
  • Off-the-shelf enablers of ad hoc networks
  • IEEE 802.11 in ad hoc networks
  • Bluetooth networks
  • Antenna beamforming, power control, and topology control
  • Routing technology
  • Location discovery
  • Energy-efficient communication in ad hoc wireless networks
  • Security
  • Self-organized and cooperative ad hoc networks
  • Algorithmic challenges in ad hoc networking

Mobile Ad Hoc Networking is an excellent reference and guide for professionals seeking an in-depth examination of topics that also provides a comprehensive overview of the current state-of-the-art.
