Wireless Ad-Hoc Networks

Edited by Hongbo Zhou

Slippery Rock University, United States of America

A wireless ad-hoc network is a wireless network deployed without any infrastructure. This includes wireless mesh networks, mobile ad-hoc networks, and vehicular ad-hoc networks. This book focuses on the most fundamental aspects of wireless ad-hoc networks. Topics include the design of the link layer for better performance, the study on routing protocols for higher efficiency, and practical issues in its application. These topics are crucial to build a foundation in design, implementation, deployment, and analysis of a wireless ad-hoc network. Main features include: General introduction to a wireless ad-hoc network, Performance comparison and improvement of medium access protocols, New routing paradigm and algorithms, Autoconfiguration schemes and related issues and Privacy in a vehicular ad-hoc network.
