Abstract:

The implications of using peer-to-peer communications within an urban environment are significant for military applications. From a networking perspective, the use of wireless technologies to support collaborative communications may have impacts on bandwidth and spectrum utilization. This paper explores the effects of wireless peer-to-peer P2P network behavior on the performance of collaboration support applications. The results achieved during the limited objective experiment conducted by the Naval Postgraduate School demonstrate significant effects of roaming on application-sharing performance and integration with client-server applications. The authors discuss the wireless network operation challenges leading to the solutions for scaling up application-sharing and improving collaborators self-organizing behavior.
