Mobility Prediction and Routing in Ad Hoc Wireless Networks
Wireless networks allow a more flexible model of communication than traditional networks since the user is not limited to a fixed physical location. Unlike cellular wireless networks, an ad hoc wireless network does not have any fixed communication infrastructure. For an active connection, the end host as well as the intermediate nodes can be mobile. Therefore routes are subject to frequent disconnections. In such an environment, it is important to minimize disruptions caused by the changing topology for critical application such as voice and video.
