In the modern Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANET) based systems even more applications require lot of data to be exchanged among vehicles and infrastructure entities. Due to mobility issues and unplanned events that may occurs it is important that contents should be transferred as fast as possible by taking into account consistence of the exchanged data and reliability of the connections. In order to face with these issues, in this work we propose a new transfer data protocol called Fast and Scalable Content Transfer Protocol (FSCTP). This protocol allows a data transfer by using a bidirectional channel among content suppliers and receivers exploiting several cooperative sessions. Each session will be based on User Datagram Protocol (UDP) and Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) to start and manage data transfer. Often in urban area the VANET scenario is composed of several vehicle and infrastructures points. The main idea is to exploit ad-hoc connections between vehicles to reach content suppliers. Moreover, in order to obtain a faster data transfer, more than one session is exploited to achieve a higher transfer rate. Of course it is important to manage data transfer between suppliers to avoid redundancy and resource wastages. The main goal is to instantiate a cooperative multi-session layer efficiently managed in a VANET environment exploiting the wide coverage area and avoiding common issues known in this kind of scenario. High mobility and unstable connections between nodes are some of the most common issues to address, thus a cooperative work between network, transport and application layers needs to be designed.
