This letter proposes a mobile-assisted ad hoc networking architecture based on location information. The proposed architecture comprises the location layer and ad hoc layer. The location layer performs to manage the locations of nodes and to determine the area of ad hoc network virtually based on locations via mobile networks. The ad hoc layer performs to establish an actual route based on the virtual area and to send data along the established route via local networks. The proposed architecture achieves the significant reduction of the unnecessary packets and the improvement of the packet arrival rate.
