Due to the surprising growth of mobile subscribers, GSM networks have been experiencing congestion, especially in their data services. Pricing of network resources could help resolve congestion. However, due to the absence of an accurate user demand estimation, determining suitable congestion prices for the mobile networks can be problematic. In this paper, we propose an auction-based pricing approach for resource allocation in mobile data networks, specifically GPRS networks. In addition, the… CONTINUE READING
