Opportunistic Information Dissemination over Hybrid ASN Using Publish/Subscribe Communication Model

EasyChair Preprint no. 7157

8 pagesDate: December 5, 2021


Ad hoc Social Networks (ASNs) are social networks that exist within a Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET). Nowadays, almost all mobile devices such as smartphones and laptops have the ability to connect directly to each other and thus form a MANET without the need for a preexisting infrastructure. Communication in such a social network generally consists of one station broadcasting its interests which may match those of another station with which it can then engage in conversation. However, the coverage of ASNs is limited to a small geographical area, due to the limited communication range of MANET stations. In this paper, we propose an opportunistic information dissemination strategy over hybrid ASNs, defined as ASNs whose underlying MANET is hybrid. Our solution is based on SocialManet, an information dissemination protocol for MANET stations using the topic-based publish/subscribe communication model. The hybrid nature of the MANETs we consider suggests that they are coupled to an infrastructure network, and thus aims at extending the coverage of these.
