Mobile Ad Hoc Networking
October 2004, Wiley-IEEE Press
- Explores the most recent research and development in the rapidly growing area of ad hoc networks.
- Includes coverage of ad hoc networking trends, possible architectures, and the advantages/limits for future commercial, social, and educational applications.
- Ad hoc networks have been an intense area of research and development but many products that fully utilize this technology are only now being widely deployed throughout the world.
