Ad Hoc Wireless Networks : Architectures and Protocols (English) 1st Edition (Hardcover) Price: Rs.5327

Appropriate for all communications engineering courses that cover ad hoc wireless network planning, design, deployment, or management.

Ad hoc wireless networks bring together mobile devices without complex infrastructure, setup, or administration-and they have enormous commercial and military potential. Ad Hoc Wireless Networks: Architectures and Protocols is the first book to address every major issue related to their design and performance. Leading researchers C. Siva Ram Murthy and B. S. Manoj present state-of-the-art techniques and solutions, and support them with more than 200 clear examples and end-of-chapter problems. Murthy and Manoj cover media access, transport, routing, and multicasting; QoS provisioning, self-organization, security, energy management, service discovery, and much more. They offer new solutions designed to simplify deployment and improve scalability. Along the way, they introduce many topics found in no other book, including Wi-Fi ad hoc networks, hybrid wireless architectures, ultra wideband ad hoc networks, wireless sensor networks, and ad hoc network pricing techniques. This book is part of the Prentice Hall Communications Engineering and Emerging Technologies Series, Theodore Rappaport, Series Editor. Rappaport recently praised it as “the finest I have seen on the topic.”
