Although MANETs have typically been considered as isolated, stand-alone networks with no connection to the Internet, it is quite likely that future internetworks may interconnect numerous MANET clouds, each running dier ent routing mechanisms. This could be primarily dictated by administrative constraints or dier ent network functional and performance requirements and can result in scenarios where nodes belonging to dier ent MANET clouds running dier ent routing mechanisms may wish to communicate with one another. In this paper we introduce techniques to allow interoperability of various multicast routing protocols in MANETs. In particular we investigate two dier ent interoperability techniques i.e o oding based interoperability and facil- itator assisted interoperability. Our preliminary evaluation of the two techniques indicates that the o oding based mechanism is best suited for scenarios involving intermittent communications between dier ent ad-hoc domains whereas the facilitator assisted approach is best suited for data intensive applications such as video-conferencing.
