Peer-to-peer file sharing over mobile ad hoc networks (MANET) has become a popular application due to the rapid growing number of mobile devices. However, the fact that mobile nodes in a MANET dynamically alter their locations and join/leave the P2P system has posted many challenges in designing a robust and scalable P2P system. Although, in the literature, flooding-based P2P approach has been shown to be robust in a highly dynamic network, it leads to poor efficiency in terms of bandwidth… CONTINUE READING
