In this paper the behavior of a MANET when, for several reasons, the node density varies in such a way to cause subnet disconnections, is considered. Data replication is usually employed to avoid data loss in case of unwanted disconnection of a node, increasing its availability. Considering a time-scale connectivity and node mobility, replicas can be distributed over the net, in order to make data available even during disconnection periods.A formula can be derived, which allows to evaluate the… CONTINUE READING
