Discovering Mobile Applications in Cellular Device-to-Device Communications: Hash Function and Bloom Filter-Based Approach
Abstract— We propose a code-based discovery protocol for cellular device-to-device < Final Year Projects 2016 > D2D communications. To realize proximity based services such as mobile social networks and mobile marketing using D2D communications, each device should ﬁrst discover nearby devices, which have mobile applications of interest, by using a discovery protocol. The proposed discovery protocol makes use of a short discovery code that contains compressed information of mobile applications in a device. A discovery code is generated by using either a hash function or a Bloom ﬁlter. When a device receives a discovery code broadcast by another device, the device can approximately ﬁnd out the mobile applications in the other device. The proposed protocol is capable of quickly discovering massive number of devices while consuming a relatively small amount of radio resources. We analyze the performance of the proposed protocol under the random direction mobility model and a real mobility trace.
