  • To specify, design and demonstrate a heterogeneous multihop wireless IPv6 network consisting of a combination of WPAN and WLAN technologies in the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz ISM bands and possible connection to public cellular networks. The project focuses on solving practical use cases involving "semi ad-hoc networking" in MHWN based on IPv6.
  • To optimise our solution in respect of throughput, power consumption and implementation complexity. A platform independent wireless adaptation layer from a previous IST project will be exploited.
  • To extend the wireless adaptation framework to implement intelligent routing schemes on top of existing wireless network architectures.
