Multi-hop wireless networks are usually defined as a collection of nodes equipped with radio transmitters, which not only have the capability to communicate each other in a multi-hop fashion, but also to route each others' data packets. The idea of multi-hop wireless networking is sometimes also called infrastructure-less networking, since nodes in the network dynamically establish routing among themselves to form their own network "On the fly."The distributed nature of such networks makes them suitable for a variety of applications where there are no assumed reliable central entities, or controllers, and may significantly improve the scalability issues of conventional single-hop wireless networks.
