Mobile ad-hoc networks must be rapidly interoperable, customizable, and quick to adapt to the latest technological advances.

Technological Advancements and Applications in Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks: Research Trends offers a current look into the latest research in the field, frameworks for development, and future directions. As mobile networks become more complex, it is vital for researchers, practitioners, and academics alike to stay abreast within the ever-burgeoning field. With a wide range of applications, theories, and use across industrial, commercial, and domestic settings, mobile ad-hoc networks are a topic of vital discussion, and this volume offers the cutting edge developments with contributions from around the world.

Topics Covered

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Backpressure routing
  • Delay-tolerant networking
  • End to end packet delays
  • iMANET
  • InVANETs
  • MANETs
  • Network throughput
  • Protocols
  • VANETs
  • Wireless community network

Reviews and Testimonials

I recommend this book for four reasons; first, this book's logic and chapter flow make sense about this technology. Second, this book includes such basic concept for each aspect and raises this concept to advance most level of experiment and usage for MANET technology. Third, this book represents almost all real-world implementation, and four, the information presented in this book is definitely in current demand for researcher and scientists.

As the importance of staying connected in ubiquitous environment in our daily life increases, it also sets new demands for connectivity. Wired solutions have been around for a long time, but there is increasing demand on working wireless solutions for connecting to the Internet, reading and sending E-mail messages, changing information in a meeting, and so on.

This book on Mobile Ad Hoc Networks concerns both time-intensive and real time implementation of wireless technologies looked for in research. In the last few years there has been a communication transformation to adopt MANET. MANETs have introduced many challenges and many opportunities to academic and industrial research as well. A comprehensive and unified concept of MANETs in a book is required. The goal of this book is to explore the developments and current/future challenges in the area of Mobile Ad Hoc Networks.

This book aimed to serve as a powerful reference and background in the area of MANETs by tackling the prevalent research challenges that hinder a fully deployable Mobile Ad hoc Network. This book compensates relevance areas of MANET, real time implementation problem, solution, findings, and future directions of the research as well.

The book is divided into four sections, wherein each section groups several MANET-related research topics:
Section 1: MANET Protocols
Section 2: Emerging Trends of Research in MANET
Section 3: MANET Threat and Security
Section 4: Mobility Issue in MANET
