Data Dissemination in Wireless Computing Environments by Kian-Lee Tan

By Kian-Lee Tan

In our more and more cellular global the facility to entry details on call for at any time and position can fulfill people's info wishes in addition to confer on them a aggressive virtue. The emergence of battery-operated, inexpensive and conveyable pcs resembling palmtops and PDAs, coupled with the provision and exploitation of instant networks, have made attainable the capability for ubiquitous computing. during the instant networks, moveable equipments becomes an built-in a part of present disbursed computing environments, and cellular clients could have entry to information kept at details servers positioned on the static part of the community even whereas they're at the circulate. characteristically, details is retrieved following a request-response version. besides the fact that, this version is not any longer enough in a instant computing surroundings. First, the instant channel is unreliable and the bandwidth is low in comparison to the stressed counterpart. moment, the setting is basically uneven with a lot of cellular clients gaining access to a small variety of servers. 3rd, battery-operated transportable units can mostly function just for a little while simply because of the quick battery lifespan. therefore, consumers are anticipated to be disconnected more often than not. to beat those boundaries, there was a proliferation of examine efforts on designing info supply mechanisms to aid instant computing extra successfully. info Dissemination in instant Computing Environments specializes in such mechanisms. the aim is to supply a radical and finished assessment of contemporary advances on energy-efficient info supply protocols, effective instant channel bandwidth usage, trustworthy broadcasting and cache invalidation suggestions for consumers with lengthy disconnection time. in addition to surveying current tools, this e-book additionally compares and evaluates a few of the extra promising schemes.

The main challenge is to design scheduling algorithms that can construct the optimal program that minimizes the average access time. In the second mode, the pull mode, the server delivers information to mobile clients in response to their submitted requests. From the (outstanding) requests, the server determines the next object to be picked for dissemination based on some criterion. The challenge in this case is to design scheduling algorithms that determine the object which can greatly improve the effectiveness of the system when it is picked for broadcasting.

We also suggest promising research topics that deserve further attention. KIAN-LEE TAN & BENG CHIN OOI Page 1 Chapter 1 INTRODUCTION We are living in an increasingly mobile world where people travel from place to place. At the same time, information has become such an important asset that many people are craving after to meet their information needs as well as to confer upon themselves a competitive advantage. Wireless computing is the phenomenon that enables one to receive and disseminate information even when one moves about – it is mobile computing with untethered communications.

However, because of the unique characteristics (or rather limitations) of wireless computing environments, the basic request-response approach is not the most desirable approach to be deployed in such environments. For example, the request-response approach does not scale well in terms of the number of queries/users that can be supported. Instead, a data delivery mechanism should have the following features: Efficient wireless bandwidth utilization. The wireless bandwidth can quickly become congested as the client population increases.
