Abstract

In this work we consider the interconnection of islands formed by neighbouring devices in a highly dynamic topology. To allow for high mobility we take offset in a purely wireless infrastructure where all devices incorporate a global and a local wireless communication interface. We consider cooperation as a means to improve the utilization of these interfaces. Furthermore we reflect on the use of network coding as a technique for decreasing the complexity of cooperative strategies and presents obstacles that must be addressed before network coding can be deployed.
