Opportunistic Overlays: Efficient Content Delivery in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks

  title={Opportunistic Overlays: Efficient Content Delivery in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks},

Current content-based publish/subscribe systems assume network environments with stable nodes and network topologies. For mobile environments, one resulting problem is a mismatch between static broker topologies and dynamic underlying network topologies. This mismatch will result in inefficiencies in event delivery, especially in mobile ad hoc networks where nodes frequently change their locations.
