PhD project description

Overlay network-based applications have potential to improve network scalability and create a community in which resources are shared responsibility of its members. Current popular solutions target specific areas, such as file sharing and voice over IP, but important challenges prevent peer-to-peer technology from having wider acceptance in other services. The thesis shall address challenges such as advancing connectivity among peers, improving experience of users, providing incentives for peers and Telecoms to collaborate to the network, supplying economic management mechanisms to support self-organizing optimization of network resources.
