Abstract : Ad hoc networks are spontaneous networks of mobile nodes which use wireless communications. The nodes must collaborate to route and forward data packets from a source to a destination. We consider multihops wireless access networks which are ad hoc networks connected to the Internet via Access Points (AP). A terminal can send and receive data packets to and from the Internet. To achieve this goal, we propose here a micro-mobility management solution. The solution uses a virtual backbone to disseminate information and to limit the overhead. The proposition mixes the reactive and the proactive approaches to propose a trade-off between the delay and the overhead. In upload, each node has a default proactive route toward the AP introducing no latency. In download, the AP initiates a reactive localization to find a route to the destination inside the ad hoc area, reducing the overhead. A solution of paging with several AP and a solution of power-energy saving are also proposed.
