Abstract: AllNet is a new networking protocol designed to
provide communication utilizing all available means, including
Internet and cellular communications, but when these are not
available, also ad-hoc networking and delay-tolerant networking.
These latter mechanisms are best for low-bandwidth commu-
nications. Effective support of low-bandwidth networking needs
message prioritization, which can benefit by knowing whether
messages are being sent on behalf of someone to whom the owner
of the mobile device is socially connected. By keeping track of the
social network of each of the friends of the owner of the mobile
device, the device can devote its resources to supporting better
quality communication among people its owner cares about,
and fewer resources to communication among people its owner
doesn’t know.
AllNet generalizes this notion by anonymously keeping track
of friends, friends of friends, friends of friends of friends, and
so on. Doing this while using only limited communication and
storage is the challenge addressed by the AllNet social network
connectivity algorithm described and evaluated in this paper.
