Self-organizing hierarchical ad hoc network (SOHAN) is a new network architecture that has been proposed to increase the scalability property of flat ad hoc networks. This paper describes how SOHAN interoperates efficiently with the Internet based on IPv6. Procedures for the autoconfiguration of a globally-routable address, routing and gateway discovery are presented. The amount of control overheads is reduced by taking advantage of cross-layer interaction and limited-scope broadcast (LSBC)
