Vehicular Carriers for Big Data Transfers

Abstract : In the latest years, Internet traffic has increased at a significantly faster pace than its capacity, preventing efficient bulk data transfers such as datacenter migrations and high-definition user-generated multimedia data. In this paper, we propose to take advantage of the existing worldwide road infrastructure as an offloading channel to help the legacy Internet assuage its burden. One of the motivations behind our work is that a significant share of the Internet traffic is elastic and tolerates a certain delay before consumption. Our results suggest that piggybacking data on vehicles can easily lead to network capacity in the petabyte range. Furthermore, such a strategy exceeds by far the performance of today's alternatives that, although yielding good performance levels, still rely on the legacy Internet and inherent then its intrinsic limitations. We show through a number of analyses that our proposal has the potential to obtain remarkable reductions in transfer delays while being economically affordable.
