The increasing density of WiFi Access Points (APs) in metropolitan areas is enabling an opportunistic model of wireless networking, whereby a “guest” user within range of one or more wireless APs can gain temporary Internet access through these APs. In this paper, we address the problem of TCP throughput prediction for opportunistic networks. Applications of opportunistic networking can benefit from such predictions by adapting to prevailing network conditions. Our approach is different from… CONTINUE READING
