Multiple Overlay Communities and Efficient Interspace Routing



In a broad sense, overlays can be setup as spaces -'communities�- for user, data or resource access, publishing and sharing, forming domains within a larger universe. Ad-hoc creation and linking of spaces can replace single linear address spaces or hierarchically structured ones. Our focus is on how can such completely independent and autonomous spaces be created and linked dynami-cally and information routed between them: we propose dynamic space man-agement and inter-space linking and routing alternatives. We compare alterna-tive gateway strategies and gateway hotspot avoidance. We also study the effi-ciency of the proposed schemes analytically.
