This paper addresses some requirements of self-organizing networks as well as interoperability problems due to merges and splits phenomena. In a mobile environment, merges and splits characterize the spatial overlap between two self-organized networks. While merge refers to the time when two disjoint networks meet and overlap, split refers to the time of partition. In a dynamic environment, AutoComm (AC) principles bring a new support for interoperability since current protocol heterogeneity is observed at all stack layers from the radio interface to applications. In this paper, we reconsider the formalization of a community and its requirements. We then characterize the split and merge phenomena and their implications. We give some requirements that must fulfill solutions to merging (high context-awareness) in order for AC groups to self-scale. Finally, we propose a merging solution for overlapping wireless self-organized networks using heterogeneous routing protocols.
