Exploiting Heterogeneity in Mobile Opportunistic Networks: An Analytic Approach

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Heterogeneity arises in a wide range of scenarios in mobile opportunistic networks and is one of key factors that govern the performance of packet forwarding algorithms. While the heterogeneity has been empirically investigated and exploited in the design of new forwarding algorithms, it has been typically ignored or marginalized when it comes to rigorous performance analysis of such algorithms. In this paper, the authors develop an analytical framework to quantify the performance gain achievable by exploiting the heterogeneity in mobile nodes' contact dynamics.
