Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks 
(MANET) 
Mobile Ad Hoc Networks 
 
? Formed by wireless hosts which may be mobile 
 
? Without (necessarily) using a pre-existing 
infrastructure -- no fixed links 
 
? Routes between nodes may potentially contain 
multiple hops

? Mobility causes route changes 
Why is Routing in MANET 
different ? 
? Host mobility 
? link failure/repair due to mobility may have different 
characteristics than those due to other causes 
 
? Rate of link failure/repair may be high when nodes move fast 
 
? New performance criteria may be used 
? route stability despite mobility 
? energy consumption
