Abstract : Ad hoc networks are spontaneous wireless networks without any wired infrastructure of mobile terminals. We assume that an efficient network is achieved through a self-organization. Thus, we propose here a virtual structure allowing a self-organization, constituted by both a backbone and services areas. The backbone constitutes a connected structure to gather and disseminate the control traffic, representing a natural prolongation of backbone in wired networks. Services areas structure the network in separating the network in homogeneous zones managed by a clusterhead. Since terminals are mobile, we propose both construction and maintenance procedures in order to maintain an efficient and stable virtual structure, during all the network life. In order to create a stable virtual structure, we introduce a stability metric, depending on several criteria. Finally, a power-energy saving solution is proposed to optimize the network lifetime.
