This paper presents a predictive framework for mobility-aware prefetching to enhance the experience of a mobile Web user roaming between heterogeneous wireless access networks. We consider a heterogeneous two-tier wireless access network system, composed of smaller, but faster and cheaper wireless local area networks (WLAN) placed within a much larger, but slower and more expensive cellular wireless data network. An optimal prefetch threshold algorithm is proposed, which takes into… CONTINUE READING
