Title: The role of application layer mechanisms in content distribution for mobile Web and augmented reality

Date/Time: Monday, October 2, 2017 from 4:10 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Location: Barnard Hall 108
Presented: Mike Wittie

Abstract: In this talk I will present several methods for speeding up mobile Web content delivery in cellular networks. The common theme in these approaches is to give the application layer a choice in the use of network resources. Instead of using cross layer approaches, we rely on light weight application-layer measurement implemented and validated in the context of Akamai's CDN infrastructure. I will also discuss the implications of these results for the delivery of augmented reality content - traffic that is both similar and quite different in its characteristics from the mobile Web.
