Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is a kind of wireless ad hoc network in which nodes are mobile. It is a self-designing network of mobile routers connected by wireless links with no access point. Every mobile device in a network is independent. The mobile devices are free to move irregularly and organize themselves illogically. Mobile ad hoc network do not rely on any fixed infrastructure. The communication in MANET is supported by multi-hop paths. Nodes in the MANET share the wireless medium and the topology of the network changes unreliably and dynamically.
