    Relay Ability Estimation and Topology Control Using Multidimensional Context Parameters for Mobile P2P Multicast

    We focus on mobile P2P multicast, in which mobile end nodes not only act as receivers but also relay the received stream forward to others. In mobile P2P multicast, negative effects caused by the change of ava...

    Emulating Opportunistic Networks with KauNet Triggers

    In opportunistic networks, the availability of an end-to-end path is no longer required. Instead opportunistic networks may take advantage of temporary connectivity opportunities. Opportunistic networks presen...
