A key ingredient is efficient peer discovery. This paper approaches the problem by analyzing the Bluetooth periodic inquiry mode and by finding the optimum inquiry/connection time settings. At the application layer, the BlueTorrent index/block dissemination protocol is then designed and analyzed. The entire system is integrated and implemented both in simulation and in an experimental testbed. Simulation and ...
