A milestone of success for any sensor network establishment is successful data streaming over Point-To-Point communications (P2P). Typical P2P services would present the descriptive best-effort (BE) or other Quality of Service (QoS) streams. In this research, the authors present the Stateless Wireless Ad-hoc Network model (SWAN), an integrated model that is known to work in typical ad-hoc configurations like the classical wireless ad-hoc sensor networks. SWAN is a lightweight QoS model that enables operations over any routing protocol or Media Access Control (MAC) layers while exhibiting some advantages over competing models. Nevertheless, SWAN is vulnerable to troubles related to mobility and false admission.
