"Ad hoc networking" enables wireless devices to network with each other as needed, even when access to the Internet is unavailable. It enables a wide range of powerful applications, from instant conferencing between notebook PC users to emergency and military services that must perform in the harshest conditions. In this book, the field's leading researchers present today's newest, most sophisticated techniques for making network applications available anytime, anywhere. They present state-of-the-art design and implementation techniques designed to instantly network a wide variety of mobile, wireless devices without access to routers, base stations, or Internet Service Providers. Learn how ad hoc networks utilize existing IP addresses, but require new protocol engineering. Understand cluster-based networks, Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) protocols, Ad Hoc Routing Protocols, reconfigurable wireless and other approaches. Finally, review each leading application for ad hoc networking, including mobile conferencing, home networking, emergency/disaster services, Personal Area Networks (PANs), Bluetooth integration; and embedded, military, and automotive applications.
