Ad Hoc Networking  

GSC-9, Seoul


Initial architectures l.jpg
Initial Architectures

- Low power sensors networks

“surveillance” web

- small, relatively static, embedded ad hoc networks

`“bluetooth-type” networks

- Small-to-medium sized, mobile ad hoc networks

Terminlology l.jpg

Mobile Ad Hoc Networking =

= Mobile, Multi hop, Wireless Networking

= Mobile Mesh Networking

= Mobile Packet Networking

Ad hoc network applicability l.jpg
Ad hoc network applicability


Small scale Large scale

Network type (few nodes) (many nodes)

Commercial home/office personal mobile cellular like

industrial local


Government specific Public Safety Large-scale military


Community/urban “covert” networks local communications

Ietf manet standardization l.jpg
IETF MANET standardization

  • MANET - established in 1997 chartered working group within Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF)

  • Focussed on studying routing specification with the goal of supporting network scaling up to hundreds of routers

    * Unicast routing protocol

    * Multicast routing protocol

  • Work on routing for large and small scale networks

  • Work relies on the existing IETF standards such as mobile-IP and IP addressing

  • For large-scale MANET the lack of interest have put this work in question

  • Flooding: work on requirements had started

Mobile ad hoc networking manet l.jpg
Mobile Ad Hoc Networking (MANET)

  • Dynamic topologies

  • Bandwidth-constrained

  • Asymmetric links with variable capacity

  • Energy constrained

  • Multiple technologies can be used simultaneously

Open issues l.jpg
Open issues

  • A optimisation network layer and radio layers for different systems (incl. 802.11, HiperLAN)

  • B QoS support

  • C secuirity

  • D mobility

  • B, C, D issues could be orthogonal, joint optimization is very difficult (system design choice)

  • tradeoff between centralized and distributed algorithms for B,C,D

Relevant etsi activities l.jpg
Relevant ETSI activities

  • MESA Project - ad hoc network on future Public Safety communications

  • BRAN - HiperLAN-2, other


    Standardization challenges =>

    There is need for standard-based approach at the network layer.
