Mobile ad hoc networks are highly dynamic networks that offer multihop communications in the presence of changing topologies without the need for any fixed infrastructure support. These networks can be useful in a wide variety of scenarios, but setting them up and deploying services on them is a difficult task, even for experienced users. In this article we present EasyMANET ¿ an extensible platform the main objective of which is to encourage the widespread adoption and use of MANETs by non… Expand
