Wireless P2P networks such as ad hoc network, mesh networks, and sensor networks, have become a popular technology due to their potential to support huge volume of data with reliability and fault tolerance. Cooperative Peer to Peer Information Exchange (cPIE) is an innovative technique to improve the data availability using data present within the peers in the network. But the performance degrades gradually with increase in the number of peers in the network. Clustering approach is proved to be more efficient for solving the scalability problem in wireless networks.
