Abstract

It is expected that the wireless world will migrate towards an era that will comprise more local/temporary structures which, for instance, can be called Opportunistic Networks (ONs). Operator-governed ONs are dynamically created, temporary, coordinated extensions of the infrastructure. This paper presents an approach for exploiting such ONs in order to extend the capacity in wireless access and backhaul segments for efficient application provisioning, as well as an evaluation of an indicative test case as a proof of concept of the aforementioned approach.
