Interconnection networks have just not facilitated sharing of information; they have reorganised our social existence. Over the last two decades we have witnessed a tremendous influx of new technology to facilitate Internet accessibility. These technologies are in essence emerging because of the advancement in newer paradigms that encompass WiFi, ad hoc networks, and P2P technologies. Today, the Internet no longer is confined to wired technologies. Therefore, we must understand the latest advances in these technologies to pave the way for newer Internet protocols, applications, and architectures.

The special issue will primarily encompass theoretical and practical solutions that advance the research in Internet protocols, applications, and architectures based on WiFi, mobile Ad Hoc, and P2P technologies.

Subject Coverage
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • WiFi and mobile network protocols
