In this paper, the authors deal with a model of communication that supports the mobility of the users in hybrids networks. This suggestion is based on the AODV (Ad hoc On-demand Distance Vector) protocol that exploits both opportunistic routing techniques and handover between different access points to manage mobility in hybrid networks. Opportunistic routing techniques that operate on the principle of \"Store, carry and forward\" are considered. With Network Simulator 2 (NS2) package, the traffic of control, the packet delivery ratio and the end to end delay are measured in the original version of AODV and compared with the modified version.
