Mobile TCP Usage Characteristics and the Feasibility of Network Migration Without Infrastructure Support
Source: Rice University
In this poster the authors describe initial findings regarding Internet usage characteristics, in particular TCP flows from a field study with 25 iPhone users. The authors present details regarding their usage characteristics, and provide a solution for migrating flows between different networks and/or network interfaces without requiring infrastructure support or changes to current applications and protocols, and with minimal impact to the user. Numerous research efforts have analyzed network usage characteristics, without distinguishing between mobile phone users and regular PC users.
