In disaster scenarios, communication systems usually consist of heterogeneous nodes and damaged infrastructure. Communication is important for rescue teams and victims as well but a serious problem because normal network systems like wired or mobile radio Internet could be unreliable or simply not available. To deal with these problems, much effort has been spent to mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) and their specialties. Those networks are usually unsteady and highly mobile. Therefore, classical network services like resolution of names to their regarding local IP addresses is a big challenge. To overcome the problem of name resolution, we introduced a new approach for consistent and efficient name resolution using adaptive routing techniques. In this paper, we present the implementation for a Linux-based platform using the Click Modular Router and the validation of our testbed using the Network Simulator 3.
