About this book
Wireless devices are becoming smaller, more user-friendly and more pervasive. Wireless networks have been rapidly deployed for providing wireless Internet access. Peer-to-Peer Computing for Mobile Networks: Information Discovery and Dissemination explores two main research domains: mobile peer-to-peer computing and wireless networking measurements and modelling.
This work presents a novel framework for mobile data discovery based on the peer-to-peer paradigm. It is designed for mobile devices that experience loss of connectivity to the Internet. It then analyzes the workload and access in large-scale wireless networks through extensive real-life measurement studies. Finally, it presents a methodology for modelling the wireless demand and access patterns.
Peer-to-Peer Computing for Mobile Networks: Information Discovery and Dissemination is designed for a professional audience composed of researchers and practitioners in industry. It is also suitable as an advanced-level text or reference book for students in computer science and electrical engineering.
