The scalability of routing protocols has been a prominent topic to increasing the lifetime of a mobile ad hoc network. One of the underlying features behind scalable protocols is the localised nature of path maintenance. However, nodes' data communications are excluded, despite being the main purpose of the routing protocols. SAMPCAN is a novel caching technique that can be applied to numerous applications of the client-server interaction model for an optimised storage and transmission of data. SAMPCAN uses a subsampling method that can be applied to two data types, mainly XML document, and Image. This novel method promotes the locality of nodes cooperation and interactions to fulfill requests of neighbouring nodes.
