Abstract

Our work showcases how opportunistic networks can be used for expanding the coverage and the capacity of infrastructures in a Future Internet context. Opportunistic networks are managed by cognitive systems, which collaborate through control mechanisms. The demonstration of these technologies shows enhanced service provision capabilities, higher resource utilization, lower transmission powers, and “green” network operation.
