Abstract

In the recent years, ad-hoc network technologies have received much attention from the research community. Therefore, the evolution of these technologies is more rapid, but also results in more complex devices and mechanisms.

Furthermore, smart antenna systems have recently become more attractive for utilization in ad-hoc networks, mainly because their cost has been decreasing steadily.

This document treats both subjects, the ad-hoc networks and smart antenna systems, in a detailed manner and especially focuses on their interaction. It will mainly address the question whether smart antennas can increase the global performance of ad-hoc networks.
