Mobility-Aware Caching at the Wireless Edge

Speaker: Jun Zhang

Time: Aug 1, 10:30am - 11:30am.

Location: Room 410, Teaching Building


We are witnessing a paradigm shift in wireless networking, which is from “connection-centric” communications to “content-centric” communications. Caching popular content at the wireless edge has been proposed as an effective approach to catch this trend. In contrast to wired networks, a unique characteristic of wireless caching is the mobility of end users. While it has rarely been considered by existing works, user mobility contains various helpful side information that can be exploited to improve the caching efficiency. In this talk, a general framework on mobility-aware caching will be firstly presented. A detailed example on caching placement at mobile devices will then be provided to illustrate the proposed design methodology.
