Abstract -
The concept of mobile computing arose due to the decrease in the size of computing machinery together with the increase in their computing power. This resulted in more number of mobile telephones and portable computing units. It paid way for the mobile users to have versatile communication with other people and notification of useful events. In the present mobile communications environment, lot of research is going on to improve the performance in the areas related to issues like handoffs, routing etc. Security is another issue to be considered when a communication channel is set up. An ad hoc network is a collection of nodes equipped with wireless communication forming a temporary network without any need of existing infrastructure. In this paper, we discuss the challenges in ad hoc network.
