Editorial Reviews


"Besides being useful for students in the classroom, this textbook can also serve as a good reference book for researchers and engineers working in both academia and industry in the field of ad hoc and sensor networks." -- International Journal of Performability Engineering

From the Inside Flap

This book provides a comprehensive yet easy coverage of ad hoc and sensor networks and fills the gap of existing literature in this growing field. It emphasizes that there is a major interdependence among various layers of the network protocol stack. Contrary to wired or even one-hop cellular networks, the lack of a fixed infrastructure, the inherent mobility, the wireless channel, and the underlying routing mechanism by ad hoc and sensor networks introduce a number of technological challenges that are difficult to address within the boundaries of a single protocol layer.

All existing textbooks on the subject often focus on a specific aspect of the technology, and fail to provide critical insights on cross-layer interdependencies. To fully understand these intriguing networks, one need to grasp specific solutions individually, and also the many interdependencies and cross-layer interactions.

Format: Paperback
The concept of as Ad-Hoc, especially a Mobile Ad hoc NETwork - MANET is of a set of devices with communications needs that are not tied to fixed base stations. Rather like the cellular phone network if the base stations were also mobile. This obviously requires that all communications be wireless. The network gets more complex as the devices move, perhaps at different speeds and directions, and as the communications links may not be symetrical, or equivalent speed. An obvious application for a MANET is a modern rapidly moving battlefield such as that in the Iraq wars. Other applications include disaster recovery where a MANET might be set up in hours rather than days -- note the time to re-establish communications in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.

This book is the result of research that covers vertually every aspect of MANETs included Routing, Scability, Quality of Service, Security, Energy Conservation, Topology, Standards, and Implementation.
