Synopsis

The authoritative guide to the state of the art in ad hoc wireless networking.







Reflects the field's latest breakthroughs

Covers media access, routing, service discovery, multicasting, power conservation, transport protocol, and much more

Includes a complete narration of prototype implementation with communication performance results from practical field trials

Introduces key applications for home, business, auto, and defense



"Ad hoc" wireless networks eliminate the complexities of infrastructure setup and administration, enabling devices to create and join networks "on the fly"-anywhere, anytime, for virtually any application. The field is rapidly coming of age, reflecting powerful advances in protocols, systems, and real-world implementation experience. In Ad Hoc Mobile Wireless Networks, one of the field's leading researchers brings together these advances in a single consolidated and comprehensive archive. C.K. Toh covers all this, and more:







Key challenges: device heterogeneity, diverse traffic profiles, mobility, and power conservation

Routing protocols for ad hoc networks, including Associativity Based Routing (ABR) and other IETF MANET protocols

Real-world implementation issues-including a complete prototype implementation

Ad hoc wireless network performance: results obtained from the latest field trials

Leading approaches to service discovery

Addressing TCP over an ad hoc wireless network environment

Support for multicast communications

The role of Bluetooth and WAP



Ad Hoc Mobile Wireless Networks introduces detailed application scenarios ranging from home and car to office and battlefield. C.K. Toh also introduces several of the field's leading projects, from Motorola's PIANO platform to UC Berkeley's "Smart Dust." Whether you're a researcher, scientist, implementer, consultant, technical manager, CTO, or student, you won't find a more authoritative and comprehensive guide to the new state of the art in ad hoc networking.

C.K. TOH chairs the IEEE Technical Subcommittee on Ad Hoc Mobile Wireless Networks and is Director of the Ad Hoc Wireless Networking Consortium. He serves as an editor for the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications, IEEE Networks, the Journal on Communications & Networks (JCN), and the Personal Technologies Journal. As a Senior Member of the IEEE and a Fellow of the Cambridge Philosophical Society, he has consulted for numerous organizations, including Hughes, Nortel, and TRW. C.K. holds a Ph.D. degree from the University of Cambridge and is a Chartered Electrical Engineer.
