Abstract: An ad hoc network is a set of wireless mobile nodes that communally form a network without specific user administration or configuration. There are several scenarios that do not have an available network infrastructure and could benefit from the creation of an ad hoc network as rescue/emergency operations, law enforcement activities, tactical/military missions, commercial projects, educational classrooms.
Keywords: fibre-fed wireless; optical fibre transmission; QoS; quality of service; ad hoc networks; chromatic dispersion compensation; equalisation; Talbot effect.
