Many of the existing opportunistic networking systems have been designed assuming a small number links per node and have trouble scaling to large numbers of potential concurrent communication partners. In the real world we often find wireless local area networks with large numbers of connected users -- in particular in open Wi-Fi networks provided by cities, airports, conferences and other venues. In this paper we build a 50 client opportunistic network in a single Wi-Fi access point and use it…

A mobile peer-to-peer system for opportunistic content-centric networking
This work presents a middleware architecture for a mobile peer-to-peer content distribution system that allows wireless content dissemination between mobile nodes without relying on infrastructure support and describes the design and implementation of the architecture.
A performance comparison of DTN bundle protocol implementations on resource constrained nodes
The results of experiments are presented comparing two of the major open-source DTN implementations, DTN2 and IBR-DTN, on resource-constrained nodes in terms of storage and receive performance, as well as network throughput.
Enabling ad-hoc-style communication in public WLAN hot-spots
Commercial WLAN APs that do not employ L2 security to serve as link layer packet relays without requiring the mobile nodes to authenticate with the WLAN hot-spot are instrumented.
Protecting regular customer traffic from ad-hoc traffic in public WLAN hot-spots
This work presents how LEDBAT and its modified version, fLEDBAT, can be used as transport protocol between mobile devices in an infrastructure mode WLAN to reduce the impact on regular traffic and complement LEDBAT by bundle admission control mechanisms based on the queueing delay and/or the number of active bundle transfers as alternative approaches.
Slicing the battery pie: fair and efficient energy usage in device-to-device communication via role switching
This paper measures and analyzes the energy consumption of today's device-to-device communication technologies: Wi-Fi Direct, Bluetooth and WLAN-Opp (a solution based on the WLAN access point mode) and proposes strategies to increase fairness by alternating the hosting role among the peers.
Performance evaluation of DTN implementations on a large-scale network emulation testbed
The quantitative assessment verified the basic behavior of the DTN implementations, but also identified scalability issues for DTN2 in scenarios with as few as 26 nodes, emphasizing the need for more extensive large-scale experiments with DTN applications and protocols for comprehensive evaluations.
Delay-tolerant network protocol testing and evaluation
The proposed TUNIE architecture is a large-scale emulation testbed for DTN protocol evaluation based on network virtualization capable of simulating reliable DTN environments and obtaining an accurate system performance evaluation.
SLAW: A New Mobility Model for Human Walks
The performance study using using SLAW generated traces indicates that SLAW is effective in representing social contexts present among people sharing common interests or those in a single community such as university campus, companies and theme parks.
Performance comparison of DTN bundle protocol implementations
While the overall results show, that all implementations provide some baseline compatibility with each other, the stability and achieved performance under stress situations varies widely between implementations.
Understanding individual human mobility patterns
The trajectory of 100,000 anonymized mobile phone users whose position is tracked for a six-month period is studied, finding that, in contrast with the random trajectories predicted by the prevailing Lévy flight and random walk models, human trajectories show a high degree of temporal and spatial regularity.
