Opportunistic Networking and Computing


Opportunistic Networks are self-organizing wireless networks that utilize in an “opportunistic” way all communication possibilities offered by wired or wireless devices, distributed pervasively throughout our living environment or carried around by users. Opportunistic Networks offer the transition from a network of devices to which users must adapt, to a network that adapts itself to user needs and behaviors. The opportunistic computing paradigm exploits opportunistic network potential to build complex pervasive services that utilize, and when necessary compose, the services and processing capacities in the surrounding environment.
