1.6.1 IBSS

IBSS - Independent Basic Service Set

Also known as an ad-hoc network, an IBSS is when end devices communicate via WiFi without an AP. One device set up the IBSS – SSID name and other parameters. Other devices can join this IBSS if they have the authentication parameters and communicate directly. An IBSS does not scale well. There is no central control. Services such an IP addressing must be performed manually etc.
