Abstract:

Mobile devices have had a major advancement in recent years as they are becoming as powerful as normal household computers. Most people use them daily across the world for communication through emails, phone calls, text, chat rooms, etc. But for most these devices to work for the average user, they need to be connected to some kind of Structured Network. This becomes a problem when there is some kind of crisis and the user of these devices can t communicate with anyone because the Structured Network is disabled or inaccessible. There is still a way to handle this situation through the use of the mobile device. These devices are advance enough that they may be able to connect or create a network of their one. For such a small and portable device, this type of network is called a Mobile Ad-hoc Network MANET. A MANET is a network composed of mobile devices that communicate between each other. Each device communicates with the other devices within its radio range and uses those devices as intermediates to communicate with even further devices. This research will prove the feasibility of a MANET to help in the management of certain scenarios where there is no Structured Network to connect to.
