The article discusses on the limitations of peer-to-peer file transfers and its impact to wireless data network services. Reportedly, this limitations were highlighted after issues on 3G file transfers using the Iphone surfaced. This impact will not be limited to the iPhone, or to smartphones in general, and won't be cured by a future transition to 4G technologies because these limitations spring from the basic differences between wireless networks and other means of Internet access.

    Because of the bandwidth requirements, peer-to-peer networks are useful when delivering large files. Each of the two cores in distributed computing needs a mechanism to communicate with the other core that supports their bandwidth need, using P2P communication. In this paper, we propose MPLS...

    A definition of the term "OpenFT" is presented. It refers to a peer-to-peer (P2P) network where nodes submit lists of shared files to other nodes to keep track of which files are available on the network. The process is said to reduce the bandwidth consumed from search requests at the price of...
