Abstract

The prospect of having an easily-deployable, self-configuring network for a relatively low investment has made wireless mesh networks an attractive platform to provide wireless services. With the significant attention currently placed on wireless mesh networking, deployment of these mesh networks may be imminent. However, even with the infrastructure in place, development of flexible middleware has yet to reach a level where it can deliver on the promise of mesh networks due to the special characteristics of wireless connectivity. In this paper, we propose a fully decentralized news service based on epidemics. Its simple design makes for a scalable and robust solution, flexible enough to be used as the basis for other more sophisticated applications.
