    Abstract

    This paper introduces BLESSED, a universal opportunistic ad hoc networking model intended for smart mobile devices. It enables fast and lightweight data dissemination in wireless community networks through the complementary utilization of the IEEE 802.11 and Bluetooth Low Energy standards. As a ubiquitous alternative to the publicly-limited ad hoc networking interfaces, it resolves many of the peer-to-peer data forwarding issues with smart beacon advertisements. Opportunistic beacons of BLESSED require neither association nor connection for data sharing, instead exploit the network identifiers as message carriers. Our applicability tests on a real-life setup indicate the soundness of the model. Providing a high data dissemination performance, BLESSED can be applied to numerous daily application scenarios.
