A Locality Preserving Routing Overlay Using Geographic Coordinates

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper presents a design for a general locality preserving routing overlay network based on geographic coordinates of nodes. For efficient use of network resources, it is important to follow some locality principles while routing bulk multimedia content. The proposed overlay network creates the interconnection among large number of highly dynamic nodes in a completely decentralized manner, based on adaptive hierarchical partitioning of the geographical space. A major benefit of using coarse grain geographic coordinates is that they are available at off-the-shelf databases and thus do not incur additional measurement overhead.
