Neighbor-aware architectures are mainly used to build scalable networks with a huge number of mobile subsystems. The primary objective of this paper is to improve connectivity efficiency and dynamic adaptation of nodes in the mobile Internet environment. The key issues are excessive control transfer, node/link access failure and connectivity maintenance. To overcome these issues, connectivity-aware structures are proposed in this work, called rule-based self-stability approaches, which are

Computing parameters, such as connectivity efficiency, hop stretch, access and connectivity improvement analysis, are presented in this paper. 63 communicate with each other, directly or through one or more intermediate nodes [3] . On the other hand, mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs, also known as self-organized networks) have been the focus of a lot of recent research and development efforts [4] . Wireless networks are bandwidth-and energy-constrained due to limited resources. Selforganization minimizes the number of message transmissions and receptions, and helps conserve energy [5] by recovering from node failure. It also solves the fundamental broadcast storm problem [6] based on unique identity paths or the virtual structure concept. In this proposed architecture, low message complexity is used to support low overhead at the node level as well as throughout the network. It also provides a possible solution to avoid collision, contention and link-failure issues. Self-organization is achieved with the reconstructed topology process of the selfish node with the help of a distributed localized algorithm [7] . If the node is to join a new area, its service is limited based on hierarchies [8] in which flat routing support for each node is achieved. In real-time data transfer, such as voice over Internet protocol, flat routing is not sufficient. Meanwhile, the hierarchy routing architecture assigns high priority to real-time traffic [9] . This is also a feature of self-organization. The self-control, self-organization, and ad hoc properties make MANETs applicable in both civilian and military sectors. Self-organization properties are given below. In this paper, architectures for mesh and mobile ad hoc networks are analyzed with stable and mobile conditions. The remainder of the paper is organized as follows: Section 2 presents related work and problem formulation. Section 3 describes the network structure with both stable and mobile domains. Section 4 gives the mathematical analysis of the proposed combined network architecture. Section 5 presents simulation results and performance analysis. Finally, Section 6, concludes the paper.
