Rich Content Dissemination in Hybrid Cellular and 802.11 Ad Hoc Networks

The authors design, implement, and evaluate a middleware system, HybCAST that leverages a hybrid cellular and ad hoc network to disseminate rich contents from a source to all mobile devices in a predetermined region. HybCAST targets information dissemination over a range of scenarios (e.g., military operations, crisis alerting, and popular sporting events) in which high reliability and low latency are critical and existing fixed infrastructures such as wired networks, 802.11 access points are heavily loaded or partially destroyed.
