Wireless Grid

Wireless Grid

Wireless grids are wireless computer networks consisting of different types of electronic devices with the ability to share their resources with any other device in the network in an ad-hoc manner. A definition of the wireless grid can be given as: "Ad-hoc, distributed resource-sharing networks between heterogeneous wireless devices" The following key characteristics further clarify this concept:

  • No centralized control
  • Small, low powered devices
  • Heterogeneous applications and interfaces
  • New types of resources like cameras, GPS trackers and sensors
  • Dynamic and unstable users / resources

The technologies that make up the wireless grid can be divided into two main categories; ad-hoc networking and grid computing.
