opportunistic network, communication capabilities, fragment, video data


Multimedia data have become popularly transmitted content in opportunistic networks. A large amount of video data easily leads to a low delivery ratio. Breaking up these big data into small pieces or fragments is a reasonable option. The size of the fragments is critical to transmission efficiency and should be adaptable to the communication capability of a network. We propose a novel communication capacity calculation model of opportunistic network based on the classical random direction mobile model, define the restrain facts model of overhead, and present an optimal fragment size algorithm. We also design and evaluate the methods and algorithms with video data fragments disseminated in a simulated environment. Experiment results verified the effectiveness of the network capability and the optimal fragment methods.
