Abstract

The advances in wireless networking have enabled new paradigms in computing. An abundance of information and services provided by remote servers is expected to become available to wireless users. A fundamental issue in this environment is efficiently locating needed content. Such content may be in the form of files, services, or any other kind of data. In this paper, we describe an algorithm for efficient content location in location-aware ad hoc networks. The Geography-based Content Location Protocol (GCLP) makes use of physical location information to lower proactive traffic while reducing query cost. The results of our analysis show that GCLP performs favorably in terms of overhead and scalability.
