A multi-hop wireless network is a network in which a packet traversed in multiple successive wireless links to reach its destination. It is similar to mobile ad hoc networks, but nodes in multi-hop wireless network are fixed. Multi-hop wireless networks can be deployed at less lost and it enlarges the coverage area with limited transmit power, enhance the spectral efficiency and network throughput. But the multi-hop wireless networks are vulnerable to different types of attacks.
