Executive Summary

In the near-future, self-organized networking is expected to become an important component in ITS, and in the Internet architecture in general. An essential challenge concerning the integration of this new component is the accomplishment of scalable and efficient mobile ad hoc routing. This paper overviews considerations relative to the design of such MANET protocols inside the framework provided by the IETF, stating the need for new hybrid protocols and architecture which offer a gradual transition from "Traditional" MANET routing towards scalable MANET routing integrated in the Internet. This paper also proposes a tentative solution in this domain: DHT-OLSR, based on OLSR enhanced with dynamic clustering and distributed hash table routing.
