Network Architecture for Scalable Ad Hoc Networks
Ad Hoc networking is a technology that is gaining relevance. It is still an area under development where there are multiple open items such as routing, addressing, interoperability and service distribution. However, one of the major problems is the scalability. Most of the protocols designed specifically for Ad Hoc networks show scalability problems. In this paper, we propose network architecture for scalable Ad Hoc networks based on node classification. Moreover, an Ad Hoc framework test bed is implemented for validating the Ad Hoc nodes taxonomy concept. Preliminary results of the Ad Hoc framework integrated in PDAs (iPAQ) are presented.
