Named Data Networking (NDN) in Opportunistic Wireless Communications


Within the European project H2020 UMOBILE the research group SITI (Informatics Systems and Technologies) of the R&D lab COPELABS, University Lusófona,  is investigating the usage of NDN- Named Data Networking to extend data-centric communications into more dynamic wireless scenarios, such as emergency situations, or accessible communications.

With this propose, COPELABS is devising an NDN Android implementation for opportunistic networks, called NDN-OPP, and two applications: a content sharing application called Now@; a short messaging application, called Oi!.

Based on NDN-OPP, both Now@ and Oi! applications are able to exchange data and send short messages, respectively, directly between neighbor devices, via Wi-Fi direct, of via an access network, via Wi-Fi.

Still within the UMOBILE project, SITI/COPELABS is creating a local testbed, encompassing SAMSUNG smartphones, Wi-Fi access points and one NDN router, which provides access to the NDN Global test bed.
