Energy-Efficient Peer-to-Peer Caching and Mobility Management in 4G Hybrid Networks
Source: Purdue University
Hybrid wireless networks are an integration of infrastructure-based (e.g. Cellular or Wireless LANs) and mobile ad hoc networks. They are emerging as an attractive solution to providing seamless mobile data services. However, performance of hybrid networks is severely impacted due to high energy consumption and uneven load distribution among nodes. This paper introduces a novel scheme called energy-Efficient Peer-to-Peer Caching with Optimal Radius (EPCOR) that reduce energy consumption and distributes load equitably among mobile peer nodes.
