On the Beneficial Effects of Cooperative Wireless Peer to Peer Networking
Source: Aalborg University
Conventional cellular systems efficiency is currently being challenged by the continuously changing and more demanding world of mobile services and communications. The major problems in conventional cellular communication systems are the limited autonomy of battery-powered mobile devices and the low data rate of currently available services. In this paper a viable solution is presented to overcome the aforementioned limitations by proposing the concept of peer to peer cooperation among mobile phones. Cooperation with instantaneous pay-off is the key to break the trade-off between complexity and energy consumption.
