Efficient File Sharing by Multicast - P2P Protocol Using Network Coding and Rank Based Peer Selection
In this paper, the authors consider information dissemination and sharing in a highly dynamic Peer-To-Peer (P2P) communication network. In particular, they explore a network coding technique for transmission and a Rank Based Peer Selection (RBPS) method for network formation. The combined approach has been shown to improve information sharing and delivery to all users when considering the challenges imposed by the dynamic wireless network environments. In today's communication age there is a growing interest in finding new ways for effective sharing, distribution, and exchange of information content among multiple mobile device users.
