On Content Models for Proximity Services

First time introduced in Release 12 of the 3GPP specifications, Proximity Services (ProSe in the above-mentioned specification) is a Device-to-Device (D2D) technology that allows two devices to detect each other and to communicate directly without traversing the Base Station or core network. In other words, it is a technology that is oriented (ultimately) on the direct connection of two devices. In this article, we are promoting the idea that proximity services are more than just support for a direct connection (in fact, search for candidates for a direct connection). The paper discusses content models (that is, information dissemination models) based on proximity data. In this case, a direct connection is simply one of the possible options for disseminating information.
