P2P Systems Meet Mobile Computing: A Community-Oriented Software Infrastructure for Mobile Social Applications

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The widespread adoption of powerful mobile devices creates an unprecedented potential for innovative mobile applications that can enhance users' social interactions. The current centralized mobile system and service architectures do not allow large-scale dynamic interactions between mobile devices, as required by these applications. This paper proposes Mobius, a decentralized solution that supports mobile social applications via a two-tier software infrastructure. In Mobius, a socially-aware peer-to-peer tier provides community-oriented data and persistent services for the mobile tier that runs the applications.
