Content Networking in the Mobile Internet


A cutting-edge guide to the next generation Mobile Internet architecture and applications

The last several years have witnessed dramatic changes in the wireless Web interface environment, specifically in the way that content is stored, distributed, and checked for consistency while leveraging location awareness. This phenomenon is driving the need for increased bandwidth at the network and access level.

Content Networking in the Mobile Internet provides an integrated view of both content and wireless technologies, filling the gap between the material taught at the university and the knowledge and expertise needed to succeed in the industry. This title focuses not only on the latest technology that enables speedier content delivery on the mobile Internet, but also on how to integrate the technology to provide workable results-oriented solutions.

Written by industry leaders, the text examines such in-demand topics as:

  • Mobile Internet architecture and protocols (GSM/GPRS/EDGE, IS-95,WCDMA, HSDPA, HTTP, and WAP)
  • Mobile Web—location-based services
  • Content adaptation
  • Digital rights management (DRM) and security
  • Multimedia streaming (QoS, 3GPP Packet Switched Streaming Service)
  • Content caching and multicast (IPDC, MBMS)
  • Wireless Web workload characterization and content synchronization
  • Charging for mobile content

Packed with useful references, this comprehensive guide is a must-read that will appeal to professionals as well as graduate students in the field of wireless and mobile communications.
