"In mobile networks, due to limitation of resources in mobile handheld devices it is important to manage the data content and traffic to improve the network throughput. We are considering a hierarchical peer-to-peer (P2P) network. The efficient distribution of images in wireless networks is based on many parameters like the quality of service, bandwidth available, restricted memory and diverse user profiles. Our objective is to optimize the replication of images in such a network architecture based on the resource limitations of the requesting peers as well as of wireless constraints in Mobile Ad-hoc Network (MANET).
We exploit the fact that digital images can be segregated or combined to form higher or lower resolutions copies. We have implemented two search strategies on our network model. We devised a new formula for efficient replica allocation based upon device constraints which proved to be better then the previously proposed uniform replication schemes without considering optimal replication node"--Abstract, page iv.
