Description of Working Group:

  The purpose of the MANET working group is to standardize IP routing
  protocol functionality suitable for wireless routing applications within
  both static and dynamic topologies with increased dynamics due to
  node motion or other factors.

  Approaches are intended to be relatively lightweight in nature, suitable
  for multiple hardware and wireless environments, and address
  scenarios where MANETs are deployed at the edges of an IP
  infrastructure. Hybrid mesh infrastructures (e.g., a mixture of fixed
  and mobile routers) should also be supported by MANET specifications and
  management features.

  When routing devices rely on modems to effect communications over
  wireless links, they need timely and accurate knowledge of the
  characteristics of the link (speed, state, etc.) in order to make
  routing decisions.  In mobile or other environments where these
  characteristics change frequently, manual configurations or the
  inference of state through routing or transport protocols does not
  allow the router to make the best decisions.  The WG will put
  special attention on the standardization of a bidirectional,
  dynamic link exchange protocol (DLEP) between the router and the modem.

  The MANET WG will coordinate with other Working Groups, such as the
  pim WG for multicast support, the Routing Area WG (rtgwg), OSPF
  WG and Babel WG on the general use of DLEP, as well as the IPPM WG
  on topics related to traffic classification.

  The MANET WG is responsible for the maintenance of OLSRv2 [RFC 7181],
  NHDP [RFC 6130] and the Generalized MANET Packet/Message Format
  [RFC5444], and their extensions.

  Work Items:

  - Develop a dynamic link exchange protocol (DLEP).

  - DLEP extension to provide a credit-windowing scheme for
  destination-specific flow control.

  - DLEP extensions for reporting statistics by traffic classification.

  - Multicast MANET protocol framework based on Simplified Multicast
  Forwarding [RFC 6621] for scoped forwarding within MANET networks.
  As part of this framework the WG will produce a well defined MANET
  multicast forwarding information base (FIB).

  - Document outlining challenges and best practices for deploying and
  managing MANET networks.

Goals and Milestones:
  Nov 2016 - MANET Management Document (Informational)
  Nov 2016 - DLEP Credit Windowing Extensions (Standards Track)
  Nov 2016 - DLEP (Standards Track)
  Jul 2017 - DLEP traffic extensions (Standards Track)
  Nov 2017 - Multicast FIB (Standards Track)
