Studies of mobile ad-hoc networks are in the most
part restricted to simulations and theory. They have,
to this point, rarely ventured into the real world on
a large enough scale to make significant statements
about their behavior or performance. The lack of evaluations
is largely due to the practicable implications of
deploying and evaluating such networks in a real environment.
In order to analyse the problems we have
built a Wireless Ad-hoc Network for Dublin (WAND).
The network provides a large-scale testbed for applications
and protocols for mobile ad-hoc networks. It
offers the opportunity to explore the behavior and performance
of a variety of routing protocols in a reallife
environment and an ideal platform for investigating
the use of mobile applications in an urban environment.
In this paper we present WAND and the experiences
gained in building such a network.
