EdgeReduce: Eliminating Mobile Network Traffic Using Application-Specific Edge Proxies

This talk describes an approach for reducing network traffic over radio access networks (RANs), e.g. 3G and 4G networks, associated with mobile client applications such as social networking, photo sharing and e-commerce clients. Such applications rely on frequent interactions with Internet backend services, which often entail unnecessary data transfers due to the coarse granularity of backend API calls and the aggressive prefetching strategies used. Our approach automatically partitions mobile client applications to offload the application logic responsible for processing API response data to remote nodes at edge locations of a mobile network. This allows for unused data to be discarded before traversing the RAN. This benefits both mobile users—by reducing increased data usage charges—and network operators—by reducing network contention in limited RANs.
