DenseNet: Efficient Communication in Dense Networks


Large-Scale Highly-Dense Networks will emerge to support the IoX (Internet of Everything) vision where there will be a massive number of low power devices performing sensing/actuation on different targets and relaying/forwarding information over different and dynamic topologies (star, mesh, ad-hoc) as well as ultra-dense radio technologies, device-to-device communications, dynamic spectrum utilization and radio access infrastructure sharing. This highly dense heterogeneous networking scenario can cause a rapid exhaustion on node’s resources and reduce the device and network lifetime due to the huge amounts of data generated and that needs to be transferred across the network. The focus of the DenseNet project is to study the scalability and survivability (node and network) problems in highly dense networking scenarios.
