With ever increasing number of diverse routing protocols proposed to deal with network dynamics in MANETs, the heterogeneity of MANETs has increased dramatically. While many of these proposals only concern enhancing routing in a single domain, little attention has been given to the interoperations among the heterogeneous MANETs. Moreover, the existing inter-domain routing protocols (i.e., BGP) designed for the Internet cannot cope with the challenges of MANETs. In this paper, the authors propose a self-organizing inter-domain routing protocol for heterogeneous MANETs. The goal of this paper is to provide seamless inter-domain routing across different MANETs, which can adapt to the dynamic topology changes. They carefully examine the practical issues of inter-domain routing in MANETs and design the protocol to support opaque interoperations among heterogeneous MANET domains.
