Enhancing Information Dissemination in a Device to Device Communication Based Metapopulation using Human Mobility Trace and Beamforming
In communication network based on device to device interactions, dissemination of the information has lately picked up lot of interest. In this paper, the authors would like to propose a mechanism for studying and enhancing the dissemination of information as in the use case proposed for the future device to device communication protocol. They use the concept of metapopulation model, epidemic model, beamforming and the countrywide mobility pattern extracted from the dataset provided during the D4D challenge to build their model. They first propose addition of three latent states to the existing SIR model and then add beamforming concepts.
