Systems And Methods For Dissemination Of Data In The Download Direction Based On Context Information Available At Nodes Of A Network Of Moving Things

Communication network architectures, systems and methods for supporting a network of mobile nodes. As a non-limiting example, various aspects of this disclosure provide communication network architectures, systems, and methods for supporting a dynamically configurable communication network comprising a complex array of both static and moving communication nodes (e.g., the Internet of moving things). More specifically, systems and methods for managing the routing and replication of data in the download direction in a network of moving things.

4 Independent Claims

  • Independent Claim 1-30. (canceled)

  • Independent Claim 31. A method of operating a node of a wireless network comprising a plurality of nodes, each of the plurality of nodes comprising at least one radio frequency interface for communicating wirelessly with other nodes of the network, the method comprising: receiving, by a first node of the plurality of nodes from a second node of the plurality of nodes or from a cloud based system communicatively coupled to the network, one or more bundles of data, wherein each bundle of data comprises one or more packets of data and corresponding bundle context information comprising bundle size and bundle age informationgenerating, by the first node from wireless signals received from one or more neighbor nodes of the plurality of nodes that are within wireless communication range of the first node, wireless network context information representative of wireless communication of the first node and the one or more neighbor nodes, wherein the wireless network context information comprises a number of the one or more neighbor nodes, and a respective measure of quality of wireless communication, a respective geographic location, and respective velocity information, for the one or more neighbor nodesreceiving, by the first node from a third node of the one or more neighbor nodes, a request for the first node to transmit an identified bundle of data of the one or more bundles of data, to the third nodeselecting, by the first node from at least a broadcast mode of transmission that is directed to all of the plurality of nodes and a single recipient mode of transmission that is directed only to the third node, a mode of transmission to be used to wirelessly communicate the identified bundle of data to the third node, based upon the wireless network context information and the bundle context informationand transmitting the identified bundle of data, by the first node to the third node, using the selected mode of transmission.

  • Independent Claim 39. A non-transitory computer-readable medium on which is stored a plurality of codes sections, each code section comprising a plurality of instructions executable by one or more processors, the instructions for causing the one or more processors to perform the steps of a method of operating a node of a wireless network comprising a plurality of nodes, each of the plurality of nodes comprising at least one radio frequency interface for communicating wirelessly with other nodes of the network, the steps of the method comprising: receiving, by a first node of the plurality of nodes from a second node of the plurality of nodes or from a cloud based system communicatively coupled to the network, one or more bundles of data, wherein each bundle of data comprises one or more packets of data and corresponding bundle context information comprising bundle size and bundle age informationgenerating, by the first node from wireless signals received from one or more neighbor nodes of the plurality of nodes that are within wireless communication range of the first node, wireless network context information representative of wireless communication of the first node and the one or more neighbor nodes, wherein the wireless network context information comprises a number of the one or more neighbor nodes, and a respective measure of quality of wireless communication, a respective geographic location, and respective velocity information, for the one or more neighbor nodesreceiving, by the first node from a third node of the one or more neighbor nodes, a request for the first node to transmit an identified bundle of data of the one or more bundles of data, to the third nodeselecting, by the first node from at least a broadcast mode of transmission that is directed to all of the plurality of nodes and a single recipient mode of transmission that is directed only to the third node, a mode of transmission to be used to wirelessly communicate the identified bundle of data to the third node, based upon the wireless network context information and the bundle context informationand transmitting the identified bundle of data, by the first node to the third node, using the selected mode of transmission.

  • Independent Claim 47. A system for a node of a wireless network comprising a plurality of nodes, the system comprising: one or more processors operably coupled to at least one radio frequency interface for communicating wirelessly with other nodes of the network and operably coupled to a non-transitory computer-readable medium on which is stored a plurality of codes sections, each code section comprising a plurality of instructions executable by one or more processors, the one or more processor operable to, at least: receive, by a first node of the plurality of nodes from a second node of the plurality of nodes or from a cloud based system communicatively coupled to the network, one or more bundles of data, wherein each bundle of data comprises one or more packets of data and corresponding bundle context information comprising bundle size and bundle age informationgenerate, by the first node from wireless signals received from one or more neighbor nodes of the plurality of nodes that are within wireless communication range of the first node, wireless network context information representative of wireless communication of the first node and the one or more neighbor nodes, wherein the wireless network context information comprises a number of the one or more neighbor nodes, and a respective measure of quality of wireless communication, a respective geographic location, and respective velocity information, for the one or more neighbor nodesreceive, by the first node from a third node of the one or more neighbor nodes, a request for the first node to transmit an identified bundle of data of the one or more bundles of data, to the third nodeselect, by the first node from at least a broadcast mode of transmission that is directed to all of the plurality of nodes and a single recipient mode of transmission that is directed only to the third node, a mode of transmission to be used to wirelessly communicate the identified bundle of data to the third node, based upon the wireless network context information and the bundle context informationand transmit the identified bundle of data, by the first node to the third node, using the selected mode of transmission.
