This paper provides both theoretical and experimental evidence for the existence of an Energy/Frequency Convexity Rule, which relates energy consumption and CPU frequency on mobile devices. We monitored a typical smartphone running a specific computing-intensive kernel of multiple nested loops written in C using a high-resolution power gauge. Data gathered(More)
The satisfaction of end-users is important when evaluating services and products. Visualizing the network behavior in mobile streaming as well as modeling the correlation between Quality of Service (QoS) and Quality of Experience (QoE) is expected to improve user satisfaction of services on the Internet. Given that network and human factors are the elements(More)
We introduce and experimentally validate a new macro-level model of the CPU temperature/power relationship within nanometer-scale application processors or system-on-chips. By adopting a holistic view, this model is able to take into account many of the physical effects that occur within such systems. Together with two algorithms described in the paper, our(More)
Although Quality of Experience (QoE) is perceived as a subjective measure of a user’s experience, it is the only measure that actually counts to a user of a service. It is essential to identify, quantify and ultimately improve the perception of QoE for a user. The PERIMETER project improves the user’s experience by identifying a more(More)
Mobility frameworks nowadays are elaborate systems that involve many components that perform distinct operations. The IEEE 802.21 Media Independent Handover (MIH) standardized the functionalities of mobility frameworks and the interfaces between these components. The Information Server, a part of the MIH framework, is a system that contains information that(More)
This paper introduces a new global analytical model of the heat dissipation process that occurs in passively-cooled embedded systems, and explicits under what circumstances the folklore assumption that exponential cooling laws apply in such context is valid. Since the power consumption and reliability of microprocessors are highly dependent on temperature,(More)
