Content distribution networks are nowadays becoming a mature technology. Nevertheless, content delivery research in ad hoc networks has dealt with overlay applications, information querying and data broadcasting techniques. The aim of this paper is to explore and discuss content delivery in wireless ad hoc networks and to state challenges and reference models for this kind of networks. The concept of Information Mobility is introduced to point out that the contents are being stored in mobile nodes and that the contents move and replicate before being accessed. The network considered is a wireless ad hoc network with sparse connectivity and limited infrastructure support.
