Mobile Ad Hoc Networks

In general, mobile ad hoc networks are formed dynamically by an autonomous system of mobile nodes that are connected via wireless links without using an existing network infrastructure or centralized administration. The nodes are free to move randomly and unpredictably. Such a networks may operate in a standalone fashion or may be connected to the larger Internet. Mobile ad hoc networks are infrastructure-less networks since they do not require any fixed infrastructure such as base station for their operation. In general, routes between nodes in ad hoc network may include multiple hops and , hence, it is appropriate to call such networks "Multiple wireless ad hoc networks".
