We have all heard the term ad hoc. What does this word actually mean? How do I use it properly? I have been asking these same questions for years. However, today I have decided to solve the mystery and find the ad hoc definition. I did what every inquisitive scholar does and looked it up on google. Here is what I found on the ad hoc definition. Directly translated from its Latin origin, ad hoc means "for this"--the term is generally used to imply that something is intended for a particular situation or purpose. Hence, an ad hoc committee is one that is formed to handle a particular issue. Something that is ad hoc or that is done on an ad hoc basis happens or is done only when the situation makes it necessary or desirable, rather than being arranged in advance or being part of a general plan. Interesting, huh.So now that we have the ad hoc definition let's see if we can use it in a sentence that will impress your friends. For example, "On an ad hoc basis, Congress has placed … [Read more...] about Ad Hoc Definition

The behaviour of wireless ad-hoc networks is strongly determined by physical limitations of radio communication. Integrating the underlying physical laws into a simulator increases complexity, so that either simplifications are used or the scope of the simulator has to be reduced to a radio-layer simulator. While simulation studies are useful, they should be complemented with real world experiments in order to reveal phenomena the simulation cannot cover. For example, doing real world experiments with IEEE 802.11b based wireless ad hoc networks, Lundgren et al. discovered the existence of socalled communication gray zones that previous simulations were not able to detect.For example, in NS-2 the standard way to model node delays is by using a timer and performing some actions on the expiration of the timer. In our testbed, the capabilities of the hardware are limited and therefore tasks such as packet processing requires much more time than in traditional routers. Real world … [Read more...] about A Optimal And Result Prone Testbed For Studies Of Ad-Hoc Network Behaviour
Not everyone in this world is as computer savvy as we would like to be and many are afraid to ask about computer technology out of sheer embarrassment. Well, if you are unclear about what the deal is with Ad-Hoc mode in windows is, search no further. This article will break down for you what Ad-Hoc is, why it was created, the differences between XP/Vista ad hoc modes and how to use it.What is Windows Ad-Hoc mode?Ad-Hoc is the ability to connect from one computer (or mobile device) to another without having to by pass an access point. These access points are like wireless networks that you log into and that secure the network for you. Ad-Hoc technology should only be used with people that you know and that there is a certain reason why you are using it. Such as passing documents off from one computer to another. Once you are done, you should disable the feature, which is discussed later in the article.If you need to send applications, photos, music, movies, documents, software, etc. to … [Read more...] about Discover Your Laptop’s Greatest Security Vulnerability, Windows Ad-hoc Mode
Ad hoc testing is a term commonly used for the tests carried out without planning software and documentation.The tests are intended to be executed only once, unless a defect is discovered. This is part of the exploratory test, which is the least formal of test methods. In this context, it has been criticized because it is not structured, but it can also be a strength:the important bugs can be found quickly. It is performed with improvisation, the tester tries to find bugs with all means that seem appropriate. This test is most often used as a complement to other types of tests such as regression tests. We affirm that the ad hoc test is a special case of Exploratory Testing. During the exploration testing, we will find a large number of ad hoc tests cases (one-off tests), but some will not. One way to distinguish between the two is to examine the notes associated with an exploratory test. In general, exploratory tests have little or no formal documentation, but the result and more … [Read more...] about What is AD Hoc Testing?
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) will be deploying 11,000 ad-hoc staff for next week’s governorship election in Ekiti State, it was learnt yesterday. Addressing reporters yesterday on the commission’s preparations for the the election, INEC National Commissioner in charge of Ekiti state, Prince Adedejo Soyebi, only 630,000 out of the 913,334 registered voters are eligible to vote in the election. Soyebi added that 76 per cent of the number would be made up of corps members serving in Ekiti State, while the shortfall would be completed with students in tertiary institutions in the state. Presiding officers , Assistant Presiding officers as well as supervisors, he said, would however be drawn from the staff of the commission and staff of federal institutions. The National Commissioner also said that all the categories of staff have been identified and were undergoing training and retraining. He also noted that those adhoc staff and students would also be … [Read more...] about INEC to deploy 11,000 ad-hoc staff
