PROJECT TITLE :
Mobile Data Offloading Through Caching in Residential 802.11 Wireless Networks
Because the ever growing mobile information traffic challenges the economic viability and performance of cellular networks, innovative solutions that harvest idle user-owned network resources are gaining increasing interest. During this work, we propose leasing wireless bandwidth and cache space of residential 802.eleven (WiFi) access points (APs) for offloading mobile knowledge. This solution not only reduces cellular network congestion, but, because of caching, improves conjointly the user-perceived network performance without overloading the backhaul links of the APs. To encourage residential users to contribute their bandwidth and cache resources, we tend to style monetary incentive (reimbursement) schemes. The offered reimbursements directly confirm the amounts of accessible bandwidth and cache house in each AP, that in flip have an effect on the caching policy (where to cache every content file) and therefore the routing policy (where to route every mobile knowledge request). So as to cut back operator's total cost for serving mobile knowledge requests and leasing resources, we tend to introduce a framework for the joint optimization of incentive, caching, and routing policies. Employing a novel WiFi usage dataset collected from 167 residences, we have a tendency to show that in densely populated areas with relatively pricey network capability upgrades, our proposal will halve operator's total price, whereas reimbursing up to 9€ per month every residential user.
