The steady increase in user demand for " all the time, everywhere access " asks for effective and portable solutions for mobility management. Traditionally , global mobility has been addressed by solutions at the network layer. This is the case of Mobile IP and related approaches. On the other hand, this class of solutions presents several drawbacks, such(More)
The current network architecture for mobile devices presents applications with a synchronous model and employs end-to-end connections. In reality, devices are often disconnected from the network and, while they are disconnected, they can connect to other devices in the neighborhood and exploit the connectivity to allow the user to continue to work. This is(More)
This paper presents an architectural solution for multimedia delivering over heterogeneous smart phones tailored to the needs of individual users. The system is based on the collection of Wi-Fi fingerprints in an environment, and sends multimedia data to the users' smart phones based on their interests, their location and their movement. This solution(More)
Traditionally, global network mobility problem is addressed at networking layer. However, none of these solution is designed for supporting seamless horizontal and vertical handover. The demonstrated solution, called WiOptiMo, provides always-on, continuous and optimized network services, whenever possible, to the applications independently from lower(More)
We present a study for modeling the behavioral patterns of employees and keeping track of the social interactions among people in a real work environment. The main advantage of our approach to capture social interactions in a work environment is the use of off-the-shelf tools and devices - like smartphones available on the market - and the utilization of(More)
