Role of Gateways in MANET Integration Scenarios


Background/Objectives:Mobile Ad Hoc Network, an auto configured wireless network using mobile devices without a predefined infrastructure can be integrated with infrastructure based network to overcome the problems in following networks. Methods/Statistical analysis: Integrating two entirely different communication technologies have enormous challenges. The integration process requires an intermediate entity named Gateway for connecting entirely different networks. This paper analyze the role played by gateway in solving issues related with integration using Mobile Ad Hoc Network in various heterogeneous networks and the various phases in communication between two networks using gateways. Findings: Recent researches in Green Communication, Machine to Machine Networks, Internet of Things, Device to Device Communication explores the use of Mobile Ad hoc Networks in deploying future wireless networks with less cost and overhead. This paper reviews various categories of networks so far integrated with Mobile Ad- hoc networks, issues discovered in such integration scenarios and importance of different gateways used in integration architectures. Paper also compared different gateway discovery and selection schemes so far adopted in integration scenarios. Applications/ Improvements: To support such endeavors paper propose some modification needed in implementation of Mobile Ad hoc Network (MANET) gateways to survive in future wireless networking
