On Providing Fair Performance in Adaptive Wireless Push Systems

P. Nicopolitidis

Abstract

This paper proposes a novel method for providing performance fairness in adaptive wireless data broadcasting environments of push nature. In such environments, the performance of an application that runs on client devices and receives items from the broadcast channel is affected by both the number of these items and the pattern via which these are demanded by the application. The novelty of the proposed approach lies in the fact that, irrespective of the above parameters, all applications run by the client will receive a fair allocation of bandwidth and thus will enjoy the same performance. It requires additional functionality only at the Broadcast Server and can thus constitute a simple and effective means for wireless data broadcasting providers to support performance fairness.
