This book describes the essential technology, features, and characteristics of ad hoc networks and their fields of use. After an in-depth study of the different categories of routing techniques, an evaluation of the performance of OLSR and AODV protocols is proposed using a variety of scenarios and simulations.
A new routing protocol with QoS is presented, as well as its implementation in a network simulator, and this is then compared with existing protocols. Ad Hoc Networks also introduces the principle of load distribution and proposes a new approach using an analytical model which provides better performance. Energy optimization techniques are discussed and several protocols are compared from the point of view of energy consumption. Finally, the book looks at Wi-Fi networks and their evolution as access networks for ad hoc networks.
The book is written at a level suitable for both advanced students and engineers wishing to deepen their knowledge in the field of network planning and simulation.
