CSci5211: 802.11 Wireless and Bridges/ switches 6 Ad Hoc Network Approach No access point (i.e., base station) “peer-to-peer” mode wireless hosts communicate with each other to get packet from wireless host A to B may need to route through wireless hosts X,Y,Z Applications: “laptop” meeting in conference room, car interconnection of “personal” devices battlefield IETF MANET (Mobile Ad hoc Networks) working group
