Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANET)-An Overview

Authors(2) :-S. Revathi, E. Bhuvaneswari

Mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) are a subclass of wireless ad hoc networks having special characteristics of dynamic network topology and moving nodes. Mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) are infrastructure-less self-configuring networks designed to support mobility. The main of this paper is to provide an overview of MANET including its concept, features, types, and its applications along with the routing protocols used for communication.
