Truncated Pyramid Peer-to-Peer Architecture With Vertical Tunneling Model

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Peer-To-Peer (P2P) technologies have many advantages over traditional client/server technologies, including cost-effectiveness, scalability and robustness, due to their decentralized network structure. However, the performance has traditionally been an issue in P2P systems. Especially the higher lookup latencies, when compared with the traditional client/server systems, have been the bottleneck in many P2P systems. In this paper, the authors propose a truncated pyramid P2P architecture together with an enhanced model, Vertical Tunneling Model (VTM) for improving the lookup performance. The proposed architecture is built on Peer-To-Peer SIP (P2PSIP) network. VTM builds up vertical tunnels between the upper and lower sub-overlays to speed up the service lookup and decrease the session setup delay.
