Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Recently, Bittorrent Inc. has released a file synchronization software c
alled Bittorrent Sync based on the peer-to-peer file sharing software Bi
ttorrent. Using this software, users can synchronize the files on the de
signated folders across the multiple devices that are connected through
the Internet without using a management server. These devices can be per
sonal computers, smart phones, and tablets using different operating sys
tems. To identify the folders to be synchronized, this software uses a 2
0-byte secret key that is randomly generated. We have considered the use
of Bittorrent Sync to share files among nodes in a large wireless local
area network (WLAN), where some nodes may be connected through mulithop
wireless links. In this paper, we set up a simple WLAN test bed using t
he IEEE 802.11ac protocol that has been recently introduced as a high-sp
eed wireless communication protocol, and measure throughputs when variou
s files with different sizes are synchronized among nodes using the soft
ware. Our results show that the throughput is quite high and stable, and
a larger file can be transferred in a higher speed than a smaller file.
