An Asymmetric Approach for Cooperative Caching in Multi Hop Wireless Ad Hoc Networks
Most previous research in ad hoc networks focused on the developing of dynamic routing protocols that can effectively find routes between two communicating nodes. Although, routing is important issue, the ultimate goal of ad hoc network to provide mobile nodes with access to information. Some recent studies have shown that cooperative cache can improve the system performance in wireless P2P networks such as ad hoc networks and mesh networks. Cooperative caching which allows the sharing and coordination of cached data among multiple nodes has been applied to improve the system performance in wireless P2P networks.
