Overview and Goals Wireless communication technologies are undergoing rapid advancements. The past few years have experienced a steep growth in research in the area of wireless ad hoc networks. The attractiveness of ad hoc networks, in general, is attributed to their characteristics/features such as ability for infrastructure-less setup, minimal or no reliance on network planning and the ability of the nodes to self-organize and self-configure without the involvement of a centralized n- work manager, router, access point or a switch. These features help to set up a network fast in situations where there is no existing network setup or in times when setting up a fixed infrastructure network is considered infeasible, for example, in times of emergency or during relief operations. Even though ad hoc networks have emerged to be attractive and they hold great promises for our future, there are several challenges that need to be addressed. Some of the well-known challenges are attributed to issues relating to scalability, quality-of-service, energy efficiency and security.
Practical design and performance solutions for every ad hoc wireless network Ad Hoc Wireless Networks comprise mobile devices that use wireless transmission for communication. They can be set up anywhere and any time because they eliminate the complexities of infrastructure setup and central administration-and they have enormous commercial and military potential. Now, there's a book that addresses every major issue related to their design and performance. Ad Hoc Wireless Networks: Architectures and Protocols presents state-of-the-art techniques and solutions, and supports them with easy-to-understand examples. The book starts off with the fundamentals of wireless networking (wireless PANs, LANs, MANs, WANs, and wireless Internet) and goes on to address such current topics as Wi-Fi networks, optical wireless networks, and hybrid wireless architectures. Coverage includes: Medium access control, routing, multicasting, and transport protocols QoS provisioning, energy management, security, multihop pricing, and much more In-depth discussion of wireless sensor networks and ultra wideband technology More than 200 examples and end-of-chapter problems Ad Hoc Wireless Networks is an invaluable resource for every network engineer, technical manager, and researcher designing or building ad hoc wireless networks.
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 6th International Conference on Ad-Hoc Networks and Wireless, ADHOC-NOW 2007, held in Morelia, Mexico, in September 2007. The 21 revised full papers were carefully reviewed and selected from 50 submissions. The papers are organized in topical sections on routing, topology control, security and privacy, protocols, as well as quality of service and performance.
AD HOC NETWORKS: Technologies and Protocols is a concise in-depth treatment of various constituent components of ad hoc network protocols. It reviews issues related to medium access control, scalable routing, group communications, use of directional/smart antennas, network security, and power management among other topics. The authors examine various technologies that may aid ad hoc networking including the presence of an ability to tune transmission power levels or the deployment of sophisticated smart antennae. Contributors to this volume include experts that have been active in ad hoc network research and have published in the premier conferences and journals in this subject area. AD HOC NETWORKS: Protocols and Technologies will be immensely useful as a reference work to engineers and researchers as well as to advanced level students in the areas of wireless networks, and computer networks.
Emerging Technologies in Wireless Ad hoc Networks Applications and Future Development
Mobile ad-hoc networks have attracted considerable attention and interest from the commercial sector as well as the standards community. Many new ad-hoc networking applications have been conceived to help enable new commercial and personal communication beyond the domain of tactical networks, including personal area networking, home networking, law enforcement operations, search and rescue operations, commercial and educational applications, and sensor networks. Emerging Technologies in Wireless Ad-hoc Networks: Applications and Future Development provides the rationale, state-of-the-art studies and practical applications, proof-of-concepts, experimental studies, and future development on the use of emerging technologies in wireless ad-hoc networks. In addition, this work explores emerging wireless ad hoc technologies based on communication coverage areas: body sensor networks, personal area networks, local area networks, and metropolitan area networks and their applications in critical sectors, for example, agriculture, environment, public health and public transportation.
This is a detailed tutorial on the design and integration of mobile ad-hoc networks, temporary communications nets constructed on the fly for locations and situations where building a permanent installation isn’t possible.
From physical issues up to applications aspects, Mobile Ad Hoc Networking comprehensively covers all areas of the technology, including protocols and models, with an emphasis on the most current research and development in the rapidly growing area of ad hoc networks. All material has been carefully screened for quality and relevance and reviewed by the most renowned and involved experts in the field. Explores the most recent research and development in the rapidly growing area of ad hoc networks. Includes coverage of ad hoc networking trends, possible architectures, and the advantages/limits for future commercial, social, and educational applications. Ad hoc networks have been an intense area of research and development but many products that fully utilize this technology are only now being widely deployed throughout the world.
Ad hoc networks refer to the wireless networking paradigm that covers a variety of network forms for specific purposes, such as mobile ad hoc networks, sensor n- works, vehicular networks, underwater networks, underground networks, personal area networks, and home networks. The various forms of ad hoc networks promise a broad scope of applications in civilian, commercial, and military areas, which have led to significant new research problems and challenges, and have attracted great efforts from academia, industry, and government. This unique networking paradigm neces- tates re-examination of many established wireless networking concepts and protocols, and calls for developing new fundamental understanding of problems such as interf- ence, mobility, connectivity, capacity, and security, among others. While it is ess- tial to advance theoretical research on fundamentals and practical research on efficient algorithms and protocols, it is also critical to develop useful applications, experim- tal prototypes, and real-world deployments to achieve a practical impact on our so- ety for the success of this networking paradigm. The annual International Conference on Ad Hoc Networks (AdHocNets) is a new event that aims at providing a forum to bring together researchers from academia as well as practitioners from industry and government to meet and exchange ideas and recent research work on all aspects of ad hoc networks. As the first edition of this event, AdHocNets 2009 was successfully held in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada, during September 22–25, 2009.
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 16th International Conference on Ad-hoc, Mobile, and Wireless Networks, ADHOC-NOW 2017, held in Messina, Italy, in September 2017. The 22 full and 9 short papers presented in this volume were carefully reviewed and selected from 55 submissions. The contributions were organized in topical sections named: internet of things; security; smart city; ad-hoc networks; implementations and validations; wireless sensor networks; data management; wireless systems.
