dc.description.abstractThe concept of ad-hoc networking merges from the need of new applications for wireless computing technologies; which require temporary, dynamic and self-organized network topologies. Ad-hoc networks are a collection of cooperating nodes that are connected by wireless links and can dynamically self-organize and communicate to form a temporary network without necessarily using any pre-existing infrastructure. If some of the nodes are mobile, then it is known as mobile ad-hoc network or MANET. Due to the special characteristic of MANETs, the routing in this kind of networks face with some challenges. MANETs require the performance of multi-hop routing; consequently, each node acts also as a router and forwards packets from the other network nodes. Such multi-hop issues in mobile ad-hoc networks is the focus of this thesis. This research project presents the experience with real-world implementations of mobile ad-hoc networks. Implementations of both, Better Approach To Mobile Ad-hoc Networking (BATMAN) and Link Quality Source Routing (LQSR) routing protocols were used. Moreover, such protocols were deployed on a test bed based on laptops equipped with wireless cards and configured to operate in ad-hoc mode. Several experiments were carried out with different network topologies, mobility models and data traffic. This research describes and analyses the results of such experiments and it also presents a comparative study of the results obtained for both routing protocols.
