Decentralized and Autonomous Content Overlay Networking (DACON) With WiFi Access Points
Accessing contents from mobile devices becomes more and more proliferated and hence the need for the content distribution in the pervasive environment is growing. However, distributing contents in such environments taxes wireless network operators substantially. To provide the content distribution service in a reasonable cost, the authors pay attention to user-deployable WiFi Access Points (APs). In this paper, the authors propose Decentralized and Autonomous Content Overlay Networking (DACON) architecture for the pervasive content distribution services, which is the overlay network architecture comprised of public WiFi APs.
