Performance Optimization in Ad-hoc Networks
A Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) is a collection of mobile nodes which communicate over radio. Mobile ad hoc networks are infrastructure-free, pervasive, ubiquitous and without any centralized authority. These kind of networks are very flexible, thus they do not require any existing infrastructure or central administration. Therefore, mobile ad-hoc networks are suitable for temporary communication links. The biggest challenge in this kind of networks is to fulfill Quality of service parameters. Quality of services for a network is measured in terms of guaranteed amount of data which a network transfers from one place to another in a given time slot.
