Socially-aware traffic management utilizes social information to optimize traffic management in the Internet in terms of traffic load, energy consumption, or end user satisfaction. Several use cases can benefit from socially-aware traffic management and the performance of overlay applications can be enhanced. We present existing use cases and their socially-aware approaches and solutions, but also raise discussions on additional benefits from the integration of social information into traffic… 
Augmenting home routers for socially-aware traffic management
TLDR
The presented implementation proves that the RBHORST concept is technically feasible and can be deployed and run on constrained devices and shows that an overlay is imperative for the success of the proposed caching mechanism.
Quality of experience and access network traffic management of HTTP adaptive video streaming

  • 2018
TLDR
The thesis focuses on Quality of Experience (QoE) of HTTP adaptive video streaming (HAS) and traffic management in access networks to improve the QoE of HAS and investigates socially-aware traffic management for HAS via Wi-Fi offloading of mobile HAS flows.

TLDR
This paper formulate the optimal cellular traffic offloading problem and proposes an approach to generate forwarding paths with possible heterogeneous data chunks, including the optimal solution for single-hop direct forwarding with multiple offloading helpers and optimal chunk sizes.
Pervasive Communities in the Internet of People
TLDR
This paper focuses on community formation in IoP, a prerequisite for enabling collaborative scenarios, and discusses main challenges and propose potential solutions.
Transport Control Strategies in Named Data Networking: A Survey
TLDR
A comprehensive survey and research challenges on transport control of named data networking for the first of time and an in-depth taxonomy and classification of NDN recent transport control proposals are given.
A Survey on Quality of Experience of HTTP Adaptive Streaming
TLDR
The technical development of HAS, existing open standardized solutions, but also proprietary solutions are reviewed in this paper as fundamental to derive the QoE influence factors that emerge as a result of adaptation.

An Economic Traffic Management Approach to Enable the TripleWin for Users, ISPs, and Overlay Providers
TLDR
It is shown that different ETM approaches have to be combined for an overall solution and a suitable architecture enabling the implementation of a TripleWin solution is provided.
HORST - Home router sharing based on trust
TLDR
Home router sharing based on trust (HORST) is proposed - a socially-aware traffic management solution which targets three popular use cases: data offloading to WiFi, content caching/prefetching, and content delivery.
Socially-aware routing for publish-subscribe in delay-tolerant mobile ad hoc networks
TLDR
SocialCast is proposed, a routing framework for publish-subscribe that exploits predictions based on metrics of social interaction to identify the best information carriers and shows that prediction of colocation and node mobility allow for maintaining a very high and steady event delivery with low overhead and latency.
Towards the use of online social networks for efficient Internet content distribution
TLDR
This paper combines five different datasets from Twitter and other sources, and studies the temporal growth and decay, the geographical spread, and the social spread, of topics on the social network to design heuristics for improved CDN performance.
WebCloud: Recruiting Social Network Users to Assist in Content Distribution
TLDR
This paper proposes Web Cloud, a content distribution system for OSNs that works by repurposing client web browsers to help serve content to others, and works with existing browsers and does not require any plug-ins, and therefore can be directly applied to today's OSNs.
Incentives and algorithms for broadband access sharing
TLDR
This work explores incentives and algorithms for Broadband Access Sharing to support nomadic users and shows that ubiquitous connectivity in densely populated areas is already possible, since the infrastructure is already there, waiting to be used.
SocialTube: P2P-Assisted Video Sharing in Online Social Networks
TLDR
SocialTube is proposed, a novel peer-assisted video sharing system that explores social relationship, interest similarity, and physical location between peers in OSNs and can improve the quality of user experience and system scalability over current P2P VoD techniques.
Exploiting locality of interest in online social networks
TLDR
It is found that contrary to current wisdom, OSN state is amenable to partitioning and that its fine grained distribution and processing can significantly improve performance without loss in service consistency.
The NIST Definition of Cloud Computing
TLDR
This cloud model promotes availability and is composed of five essential characteristics, three service models, and four deployment models.
Buzztraq: predicting geographical access patterns of social cascades using social networks
TLDR
This paper shows that information encoded in social network structure can be used to predict access patterns which may be partly driven by viral information dissemination, termed as a social cascade.
