Independent Basic Service Set

An Independent Basic Service Set or ad hoc network is the simplest of all IEEE 802.11 networks in that no network infrastructure is required. As such, an IBSS is simply comprised of one or more Stations which communicate directly with each other. The abbreviation should NOT be confused with an Infrastructure BSS (Basic Service Set).
