Ad Hoc Networks: Communicating Where There is No Communications Infrastructure
Ad-hoc connectivity is based on peer-to-peer communication. The mobile ad-hoc network is a collection of wireless mobile hosts dynamically establishing a short lived network without the support of a network infrastructure. In this type of environment, it's expected that a large number of ad-hoc connections will exist in the same region without any mutual coordination. Mobile ad-hoc networks are the future of wireless networks. Nodes in these networks will generate both users and application traffic and perform various network functions. Future mobile ad-hoc networks will use mobile routers to provide Internet connectivity tomobile ad-hoc users.
P2P for virtual and/or ad hoc communities Virtual Communities—this social feature of P2P makes it possible for households to organize communities according to some interests or common goals.
