Abstract: As mobile environment is becoming popular; it becomes very effective and quick way of sharing user contents between users. This content sharing using Peer to peer scheme is limited due to the lesser distance factor and continuous availability of communication medium. Whenever large file size transfer is required, it requires more time and limitation on radius. Additionally content sharing is in plain format without any security considerations. Peer-to-peer networks offer several advantages over traditional client-server networking models like lack of connectivity to reliable hosts or servers and the use of inexpensive communication channel. Peer-to-peer network model has becoming popular in the wired broadband environment but not yet been effectively adapted to the mobile network environment. Many researchers are currently proposing and developing new P2P schemes for mobile environments with different wireless communication protocols. They are significantly adapted into applications such as the sharing of large files like multimedia and DB files between mobile devices. The peer-to-peer model based on mobile environment having several challenges like the limited on device processing power, limited memory, wireless data bandwidth, and available battery energy. With the proposed a peer-to-peer protocol, these specific constraints are addressed. This system also investigates the feasibility of a practical implementation of a peer-to-peer file sharing model of android smart phones using Wi-Fi technology. This includes an analysis of impacted performance by various variables that can be dynamically controlled in the protocol. Proposed work is done on leading Android platforms and found various optimal strategies which include minimizing the upload and download ratio to conserve battery life effectively, using flexible file segments to increase throughput, and decrease memory overhead.
