Master-Slave Cluster Based Multihop Ad-hoc Networking

Published

Author(s)

Hamid Gharavi, K Ban

Abstract

This paper presents a master-slave cluster based mobile ad-hoc network architecture for multihop communications using the IEEE 802.11 system. The proposed architecture is a mixture of two different types of networks: managed (master-and-slave) and ad-hoc (star). In this architecture, the participating nodes in each cluster communicate with each other via their respective Access Points (APs), which operate as mobile base-stations. The paper presents a network architecture where APs can be utilized to communicate with other APs in an ad-hoc manner.
