This book provides a comprehensive yet easy coverage of ad hoc and sensor networks and fills the gap of existing literature in this growing field. It emphasizes that there is a major interdependence among various layers of the network protocol stack. Contrary to wired or even one-hop cellular networks, the lack of a fixed infrastructure, the inherent mobility, the wireless channel, and the underlying routing mechanism by ad hoc and sensor networks introduce a number of technological challenges that are difficult to address within the boundaries of a single protocol layer.All existing textbooks on the subject often focus on a specific aspect of the technology, and fail to provide critical insights on cross-layer interdependencies. To fully understand these intriguing networks, one need to grasp specific solutions individually, and also the many interdependencies and cross-layer interactions.


Introduction; Routing in Ad hoc Networks; Broadcasting; Multicasting and Geocasting; Wireless LANs; Wireless PANs; Wireless Mesh Networks; Directional Antenna Systems; Cognitive Radio Networks; TCP over Ad Hoc Networks; Applications of Sensor Networks; Sensor Networks Design Considerations; Sensor Networks in Controlled Environment and Actuators; Security; Integrating MANETs; WLANs and Cellular Networks.
