Ad-hoc networks utilizing wireless technology have been considered as a means of communications among portable user terminals that temporarily meet, where distance and time come close yet easy connection to a network infrastructure is not possible. We are advancing this concept of adhoc networks and have proposed a Wireless Ad-hoc Community Network (WACNet) in order to use such networks in ad-hoc communities, which are formed between an unspecified number of people temporarily assembled with a common purpose We introduce the basic concept and features of the WACNet. The key technologies achieving the WACNet are also presented.
