Novel Bandwidth Strategy for Wireless P2P File Sharing
With the rapid development of the mobile device technology and wireless network technology, the need of an efficient file sharing method on wireless network becomes more and more significant. Peer-To-Peer(P2P) file distribution, as a quite popular method being used now, is a promising choice. However, the limitation of bandwidth of wireless networks greatly restricts the performance of wireless P2P. In this paper, the authors propose a new idea of better utilizing the limited bandwidth to improve the file distribution performance. The criteria of an optimal splitting of the half-duplex bandwidth is deduced with mathematical analysis. To achieve a further improvement on the average distribution time, they also propose a grouping strategy which works with the bandwidth strategy.
