Coalition-Based Peering for Flexible Connectivity
Mobile devices available today provide users the ability to communicate using a number of different wireless network interfaces. However, these devices do not yet fully exploit the potential for multi-homed and multi-path communication allowing them to better utilise all the connectivity that is available to them. The authors present here the Coalition Peering Domain (CPD), an architecture that supports collaborative networking relationships between mobile devices. This improves the speed and robustness of communication through more flexible use of all available connectivity.
