The authors present the feasibility evaluation of a structured communication-oriented Peer-To-Peer (P2P) system being used in mobile environments in this paper. The different levels of churn are modeled by the exponential distribution with varied value of mean online time. Their system utilizes Kademlia with some modifications as the underlying Distributed Hash Table (DHT) algorithm, and Peer-To-Peer Protocol (P2PP), one of the former candidates of Peer-To-Peer Session Initiation Protocol (P2PSIP) working group, as the signaling protocol. A prototype is implemented to evaluate the feasibility of mobile nodes acting as fully fledged peers.
