This paper presents the design and evaluation of a highly scalable, decentralized and self-organizing peer-to-peer network architecture based on the multi-mesh topology. Our network automatically adapts to dynamic node arrivals, departures and failures. Each node maintains a fixed set of neighbor connections, regardless of the size of the network. This demonstrates the scalability of the network. Our network is close in spirit to the Content-Addressable Network. While the Content-Addressable Network uses torus as the underlying network topology, our network uses multi-mesh. Multi-mesh has some unique advantages over torus and this is reflected in the evaluations of our network against the Content-Addressable Network.
