Independent Basic Service Set (IBSS)

In ad hoc networks, however, several radio nodes communicate with each other. For this group communication, there is the Independent Basic Service Set (IBSS).

Independent Basic Service Sets have no other active radio components. As with the Basic Service Set, the radio nodes, which are the Wireless Network Interface Controllers(WNIC) in the devices, communicate directly with each other. In notebooks, such WLAN adapters can be implemented as PC cards.
