An Adaptive Peer Selection Scheme With Dynamic Network Condition Awareness
Source: University of Surrey
Locality-based peer selection paradigms have been proposed recently based on cooperation between Peer-To-Peer (P2P) service providers, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and end users in order to achieve efficient resource utilization by P2P traffic. Based on this cooperation between different stakeholders, the authors introduce a more advanced paradigm with adaptive peer selection that takes into account traffic dynamics in the operational network. Specifically, peers associated with low path utilization as measured by the ISP are selected in order to reduce the probability of network congestion.
