In this paper, introduce a routing protocol for a special class of ad-hoc networks, termed by the authors the Reconfigurable Wireless Networks (RWNs). The main features of RWNs are: increased mobility of the network nodes, larger number of nodes, and a large network span. To argue that the current routing protocols do not provide a satisfactory solution for routing in this type of an environment. To propose a scheme, called the Zone Routing Protocol (ZRP), which dynamically adjusts itself to the operational conditions by sizing a single network parameter - the zone radius.
