Communication cost is a crucial concern in a 2-dimensional multi-hop Wireless Mesh Network (WMN) where storage spaces are uniformly distributed with P2P data sharing setting. To reduce communication cost, the authors aim to propose an optimal replication strategy at the participating nodes with P2P content caching scheme. They consider the send/receive rate based on read and write availability of a requested object (content or service) along with the access cost of that specific content/service. They studied other common replication strategies used in WMN environment and made a comparative analysis of those strategies with their proposed one.
