Total Management of Transmissions for the End User

Publiceringsår: 1998
Språk: Engelska
Dokumenttyp: Konferensbidrag


With the growth of mobile computing, users will have simultaneous access to multiple networks, each

with different characteristics, services and costs. This paper introduces TOMTEN (TOtal Management

Of Transmissions for the ENd-user), a framework for managing resources in this environment.

TOMTEN is a reactive framework that is only active when either the application is started up or the

user indicates dissatisfaction with a current session. The framework being reactive, positions it in

contrast with all Quality of Service (QoS) frameworks proposed to date, since these are continuously

trying to predict the user’s perceived quality and preferences.

In addition to this reactive QoS, TOMTEN also supports application adaptivity within the framework.

Application adaptivity in TOMTEN does not require modifications to the application as it is done

transparently using proxy modules.

This paper presents the TOMTEN framework and shows how it attempts to assist the user in

maximising their resource utilisation through the usage of the reactive QoS management scheme and

application adaptation. The paper discusses the different components that form TOMTEN, before

introducing a prototype implementation and presenting experimental results using two applications – a

MPEG player and a web browser.
