The two wide classes of wireless networks are infrastructure-based and infrastructure-less (ad hoc) (Loo , Mauri, & Ortiz, 2011, p. 4). Each of them can be characterized function of capabilities, base principles and future trends. The hosts that operate in infrastructure mode depend on a base station to connect to the network (these networks have centralized management), while the hosts using ad hoc mode operate more dynamically and don’t require a base station for connecting to the network since no infrastructure is present...
