Abstract: A Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) is a collection of wireless mobile computers forming a temporary network, without any fixed base station. The network nodes communicate with one another over scarce wireless channels in a multi-hop fashion. The Ad Hoc network is adaptable to the highly dynamic topology resulted from the mobility of network nodes and the changing propagation conditions. In various applications, where a fixed backbone is not available, a readily deployable wireless network is needed. Mobile Ad Hoc networks are also a good alternative in rural areas or third world countries where basic communication infrastructure is not well established. This study describes the idea of Ad Hoc networking and scenarios where this technology will make an impact. How the environment of an Ad Hoc network is very different from the wired environment, and the effect this has on the design and operation of routing protocols for mobility based Video-Telephony in Ad Hoc networks is widely explained in this study.
