Exploiting Movement Synchronization to Increase End-to-End File Sharing Efficiency for Delay Sensitive Streams in Vehicular P2P Devices
A significant aspect of wireless systems is the intermittent-connectivity experienced by nodes, where sudden network partitioning problems rarely allow a connected path between a source node and its destination. Replication of any requested object and redundancy face the requests' failures whereas they create severe duplications and aggravate the capacity of the end-to-end path. This paper quantifies the parameters that affect the end-to-end efficient transmission by taking into consideration the synchronization between moving peers in order to assign the requested resources in the end-to-end path. Synchronization and assignment of the moving Mobile Infostation (MI) peer to a certain vehicle is done with the introduced Message Ferry (MF) mobile Peer in a unidirectional way.
