Adaptive Usage of Cellular and WiFi Bandwidth:
An Optimal Scheduling Formulation
ACM MobiCom Workshop on Challenged Networks, August 2012.

Worldwide, mobile data connectivity is now widespread, but not yet ubiquitous due to coverage limits and cost concerns. Mobile data offloading to WiFi—where available—could greatly decrease the usage of cellular data networks. In delay-tolerant applications, one could delay network communication in order to exploit free WiFi connections expected to appear soon. However, WiFi connectivity is lim- ited, and even delay-tolerant applications must meet quality-of-service deadlines. To explore such bandwidth scheduling issues, we develop an optimal MILP-based scheduling framework. Our framework schedules multiple application data streams with varying size and delay tolerance, onto networks with varying coverage and bandwidth, in order to minimize cellular data usage. The ability to subdivide data streams into scheduling units is important, because it allows applications to exploit brief windows of WiFi coverage and it allows tradeoffs between solution quality and solver runtime.
