Abstract

With wireless technologies extending to every part of our daily lives, mobile networking applications are becoming increasingly popular for accessing the Internet. Among them, web surfing is one of the most important applications because the World Wide Web has accelerated the dissemination of information and knowledge via the Internet unencumbered by geographic boundaries. In this paper, we propose a peer-to-peer approach, called PPWeb, for mobile web surfing. Unlike traditional approaches, the proposed scheme implements a Collaborative Forwarding algorithm that takes advantage of opportunistic wireless connections, thereby improving network capacity by exploiting the diversity of network mobility. Using simulations as well as real-world network scenarios, we demonstrate that the proposed scheme provides a better web surfing service than traditional schemes, and thus facilitates more effective web surfing on the go.
