mobile ad hoc network
A mobile ad hoc network (MANET), also known as wireless ad hoc network or ad hoc wireless network, is a continuously self-configuring, infrastructure-less network of mobile …
A mobile ad hoc network (MANET) is generally defined as a network that has many free or autonomous nodes, often composed of mobile devices or other mobile pieces, that can arrange themselves in various ways and operate without strict top-down network administration.
Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs) are an emerging type of wireless networking, in which mobile nodes associate on an extemporaneous or ad hoc basis. MANETs are both self-forming and self-healing, enabling peer-level communications between mobile nodes without reliance on centralized resources or fixed infrastructure.
MANET stands for Mobile adhoc Network also called as wireless adhoc network or adhoc wireless network that usually has a routable networking environment on top of a Link Layer ad hoc network.. They consist of set of mobile nodes connected wirelessly in a self configured, self healing network …
Simply stating, a Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) is one that comes together as needed, not necessarily with any support from the existing Internet infrastructure or any other kind of fixed stations. We can formalize this statement by defining an ad hoc network as an
A MANET is a type of ad hoc network that can change locations and configure itself on the fly. Because MANETS are mobile, they use wireless connections to connect to various networks. Because MANETS are mobile, they use wireless connections to connect to various networks.
It focuses on the following topics in ad-hoc networks: vehicular ad-hoc networks, security and caching, TCP in ad-hoc networks and emerging applications. It is targeted to provide network engineers and researchers with design guidelines for large scale wireless ad hoc networks.

Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs) MANETs are made up of mobile devices that move in different directions at random speeds. These types of networks do not have any infrastructure and repeatedly configure themselves to connect with different devices in their communication range.
Ad Hoc Networks – Operating Principle Fig. depicts a peer-to-peer multihop ad hoc network Mobile node A communicates directly with B (single hop) when a channel is available If Channel is not available, then multi-hop communication is necessary e.g. A->D->B …
A wireless ad hoc network (WANET) or MANET (Mobile ad hoc network) is a decentralised type of wireless network. The network is ad hoc because it does not rely on a pre-existing infrastructure, such as routers in wired networks or access points in managed (infrastructure) wireless networks.
Security of mobile ad hoc networks (MANET) has become a more sophisticated problem than security in other networks, due to the open nature and the lack of infrastructure of such networks. In this paper, the security challenges in intrusion detection and authentication are identified and the different types of attacks are discussed.
An ad-hoc (or spontaneous) network is a local area network or other small network, especially one with wireless or temporary plug-in connections, in which some of the network devices are part of the network only for the duration of a communications session.
