Abstract :
[en] Data traffic from mobile devices experiences unprecedented growth that current cellular network capacities cannot sustain. Traffic offloading to other type of networks such as WiFi emerged as a valid solution to relieve the load in cellular networks. In this paper, we propose novel solution, which unlike other existing methodologies uses information provided by the cellular network to optimize traffic offloading. The provided information includes channel usage statistics, user mobility patterns, information about available resources and other parameters. The offloading decisions aim at optimizing the balance between user and application requirements with availability of network resources. We validated the effectiveness of the proposed solution through simulations with NS-3 network simulator. The results show the capability of the solution in relieving cellular load while guaranteeing user QoS.
