Location-based services (LBS) achieve information sharing based on each user’s location and demand. However, LBS platform providers require abundant network resources since they have to replicate and disseminate the published content to the subscribers as a broker. Therefore, a user or an organization, having few resources, is difficult to be a standalone LBS platform provider or content publisher without a broker as they need to address network traffic for the enormous subscribers, and they need to have a way to manage all the subscribers’ information. This letter proposes user-centric location-oriented content dissemination based on peer-to-peer and device-to-device communications.
