abstract  Terminodes are personal devices that provide the functions of both the terminals and the nodes of the network. A network of terminodes is an autonomous, fully self-organized, wireless network, independent of any infrastructure. It must be able to scale up to millions of units, without any fixed backbone nor server. In this paper we present the main challenges and discuss the main technical directions.
