Ad Hoc Networking - 01 edition

Ad Hoc Networking (ISBN10: 0201309769; ISBN13: 9780201309768)

Summary: "Ad hoc" networks are wireless, mobile networks that can be set up anywhere and anytime--outside the Internet or another preexisting network infrastructure. The field has tremendous commercial and military potential, supporting applications such as mobile conferencing outside the office, battlefield communications, and embedded sensor devices that automate everyday functions, among others.

Ad Hoc Networking is a collection of algorithms, protocols ...show more, and innovative ideas from the leading practitioners and researchers that will propel the technology toward mainstream deployment. It discusses numerous potential applications, reviews relevant networking concepts, and examines the various approaches that define emerging ad hoc networking technologies. Specific topics covered include:

  • The Ad Hoc On-Demand Distance-Vector (AODV) protocol, which reduces memory and processing requirements
  • The Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) algorithm, in which paths are carried along with the data packets
  • Ad hoc networking for the military
  • Cluster-based networks for transmission management and routing efficiency
  • The Destination-Sequenced Distance-Vector (DSDV) protocol
  • The Zone Routing Protocol (ZRP)--a hybrid proactive/reactive protocol
  • The Temporally Ordered Routing Algorithm (TORA)--a link-reversal protocol
  • The Associative Bit Routing (ABR) algorithm, in a chapter which addresses battery life concerns
  • Source Tree Adaptive Routing (STAR) protocol--a bandwidth-efficient partial link-state algorithm
Throughout this book, important issues--scalability, cost, bandwidth efficiency, power requirements, compatibility, quality of service, and security--are considered; possible solutions to these challenges are presented.

With cutting-edge contributions by such leading experts as Scott Corson, Jim Freebersyser, J. J. Garcia-Luna-Aceves, Zygmunt Haas, David B. Johnson, Barry M. Leiner, Martha Steenstrup, and C-K. Toh, Ad Hoc Networking lays the foundation for the next generation of mobile computer networking.

"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.KEY TOPICS:Learn how ad hoc networks utilize existing IP addresses, but require new protocol engineering to establish paths for communication between each network node. Understand cluster-based networks, Dynamic Source Routing (DSR) protocols, Ad Hoc On-Demand Distance Vector (AODV) Routing Protocols; reconfigurable wireless networks; link reversal routing; 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.MARKET:For all engineering, computing, and networking professionals interested in fresh approaches to mobile computing.
