Contributions from leading experts in the field of wireless communication technology
Chapters contain in-depth descriptions of the terminologies and concepts, to provide a wide-ranging, comprehensive volume on the latest trends in ad hoc and ubiquitous computing
Reports on the rapid advancements in the wireless communication technologies
Wireless ad-hoc network communication technologies have experienced a steep growth in research and significant advancements in recent times due to their important advantages. These benefits help to set-up a network fast in situations where there is no existing network set-up, or when setting up a fixed infrastructure network is considered infeasible. However, there are challenges that still need to be addressed.
This indispensable guidebook provides a comprehensive resource on the new ideas and results in the areas of mobile ad-hoc networks and other ad-hoc computing systems in the wireless communication technology field. Wireless ad-hoc networks are explored by leading experts in the field from both academia and industry, with discussions on various challenges in varied environments, standards, routing mechanisms, etc. This reader-friendly, broad-ranging text features in-depth descriptions of terminologies and concepts related to the diverse subject areas germane to wireless ad hoc communication.
