Replication of data items among different nodes of a wireless
infrastructure-less network may be an efficient technique to
increase data availability and improve data access latency. This
paper proposes a novel algorithm to distribute data items among
nodes in these networks. The goal of the algorithm is to deploy the
replicas of the data items in such a way that they are sufficiently
distant from each other to prevent excessive redundancy but,
simultaneously, they remain close enough to each participant, such
that data retrieval can be achieved using a small number of
messages. The paper describes the algorithm and provides its
performance evaluation for different configurations.
