In this paper we present a P2P file-sharing architecture optimized for mobile networks. We discuss the applicability of current P2P techniques for resource access and mediation in the context of 2.5G/3G mobile networks. We investigate a mobile P2P architecture that is able to reconcile the decentralized operation of P2P file sharing with the interests of network operators, e. g. control and performance. The architecture is based on the popular eDonkey protocol and is enhanced by additional caching entities and a crawler.
