Enabling Run-Time Utility-Based Optimization Through Generic Interfaces in Wireless Networks

In this paper, the authors address the use of utility-based optimization in wireless networks. Their optimization approach is enabled by well-defined, technology- and platform-independent generic interfaces. The latter provide an abstract and unified representation of data and services available from the protocol stack, ranging from old legacy protocols to newer protocols. In particular, the application layer abstraction interface enables the expression of individual application requirements and reconfiguration of their tunable parameters. The proposed framework allows multiple applications, network protocols, and link layer technologies to coexist and evolve independently of each other
