In recent years wireless Internet access and wireless communications between peers have become the focus of intensive research efforts in various areas of information and communication technologies. Mobility aspects, software development and support for mobile users are currently of major interest within this research area. The Mobile IP protocol is deployed for mobility management of hosts moving between networks. Ad hoc routing is also of major importance for connectivity between communicating mobile hosts without backbone infrastructure. In this paper we propose and describe an integrated connectivity solution and its software implementation between an ad hoc network running the Ad Hoc On-Demand Distance-Vector Protocol (AODV) and a wired IP network where Mobile IP is used for mobility management. The article also describes a project called Mobile City in which our software solutions and support infrastructure are tested and validated.
