Evaluation of cluster effect in mobile opportunistic networks
International Conference on Network and Service Management: Smart Management for Future Networks and Services (CNSM 2021)
This paper analyses how data dissemination occurs in mobile Opportunistic Networks by evaluating the impact of different parameters such as density of neighbors, communication range, and speed. There exist several analytical models to evaluate the data dissemination time in OppNets. These models were developed based on a very strong assumption of uniform distribution of infected nodes. We prove that this assumption does not work for the whole spectrum of mobile OppNets. This paper shows our simulation results validated with our analytical model and discusses the impact of different parameters on data dissemination.
