Mobile Ad-hoc Network (MANET) is an emerging area of research. Most current work is centralized with different issues. MANET is temporarily constructed network with no infrastructure. It is based on self-organizing and rapidly deployed network. The special feature of MANET brings this technology great opportunity together with several challenges. This paper describes the fundamental problems of ad hoc networking by giving its related background including the concept, features, application and issues of MANETs.
