Data Management in Ad Hoc Networks
Thursday, November 18, 2004, 11:00am
Emergence of low power short-range wireless technologies, availabilty of cheap and abundant storage, and enhanced multimodal interfaces for mobile devices is an encouraging trend that further motivates use of ad hoc networks. Ad Hoc networks are highly dynamic and thus serendipitous. Getting prompt and reliable answers to queries in such environments is a challenging problem. We present related work on trust, consistency and location in peer-to-peer networks and conventional filesystems. We propose an approach to improve the latency of queries, and their success rates in ad hoc networks. Finally, we present initial results from our simulations and discuss the pros and cons of the proposed approach.
