Abstract

This paper describes a mechanism for content distribution through opportunistic contacts between subscribers. A subset of subscribers in the network are seeded with the content. The remaining subscribers obtain the information through opportunistic contact with a user carrying the updated content. We study how the rate of content retrieval by subscribers is affected by the number of initial seeders in the network. We also study the rate of content retrieval by the subscribers under coding strategies (Network Coding, Erasure Coding) and under Flooding, Epidemic Routing.
