Abstract : This thesis proposes a new interconnection architecture for spontaneous edge networks. A spontaneous edge network is made of several networks based on various technologies, which appear like only one local and autonomous network to the user. The democratization of wireless technologies, and especially of 802.11, has enabled the rise of such networks. While the IP philosophy states that all packets are independent, we stress the importance of the concept of connection and the need to maintain established connections. To this end, we propose a 2.5 layer, between the MAC and IP layers, using MPLS paths to convey data. Coupled with a reactive routing, this connection-oriented architecture at the 2.5 layer presents several benefits. Our proposal has been implemented in a prototype called Lilith.
