Abstract:

Internet-based Mobile Ad Hoc Networking is an emerging technology that supports self-organizing, mobile networking infrastructures, and is one which appears well-suited for use in future commercial and military applications. This article presents an overview of Mobile Ad Hoc Networking technology and current Internet Engineering Task Force standardization efforts in this regard. It gives long-term rationale for following an Internet Protocol-based networking approach in these mobile wireless systems. It also discusses some current limitations of the technology and gives several areas for future work.
