Abstract [en]

In the last few years, the exploit of ad hoc wireless networks has increased thanks to their

commercial and military potential. An application of wireless ad hoc networks is Bluetooth

technology, which allows wireless communication among different devices. As a military

application, we can report the establishment of communications between groups of soldiers in

a not safe territory. Additionally, ad hoc networks are useful in emergency operations, where

no fixed infrastructure is feasible.

A mobile ad hoc network (MANET) represents a system of wireless mobile nodes that can

self-organize freely and dynamically into arbitrary and temporary network topology. On one

hand, they can be quick deployed anywhere at anytime as they eliminate the complexity of

infrastructure setup. On the other hand, other problems arise, such as route errors or higher

overhead, caused by the mobility of nodes.

The main goal of this master’s thesis has been the improvement of the communication

between MAC 802.11 protocol and DSR (Dynamic Source Routing) protocol, to run in the ns-

2 network simulator.
