Service for MANET node self-configuration and communication

Abstract : Setting up a MANET is a complex task, involving the configuration of a routing protocol and the network parameters of the nodes, since there is no centralized point for distribution of IP addresses. This complexity is further compounded by the absence of a name resolution system. We describe NetService, a service that frees application developers and deployers from this burden. NetService runs on the nodes and auto-configures a predefined MANET at the request of applications. It handles IP address assignment and includes a name resolution mechanism that provides a hierarchical naming scheme and is compatible with a standard resolver. The service provides an API to configure the nodes and another one for exchanging messages, abstracting applications from the details of network access.
