WLAN Technologies for Mobile ad hoc Networks

  title={WLAN Technologies for Mobile ad hoc Networks},
  author={Raffaele Bruno and Marco Conti and Enrico Gregori},
The paper focuses on two emerging technologies for constructing a Mobile ad hoc network: IEEE 802.11 and Bluetooth. The IEEE 802.11 standard is a good platform to implement a single-hop ad hoc network because of its extreme simplicity. Furthermore, multi-hop networks covering areas of several square kilometers could be built by exploiting the IEEE 802.11 technology. On smaller scales, technologies like Bluetooth can be exploited (perhaps in combination with the 802.11-type technology) to build… CONTINUE READING
