Give Your App a Boost—AT&T Dev Summit Session
At the AT&T Developer Summit coming up in a few weeks, the AT&T Labs Research team will introduce you to the wireless state machine and highlight how today’s applications often fail to adopt to this new environment.
Subhabrata (Shubho) Sen and Oliver Spatscheck, senior members of the Technical Staff at AT&T Labs-Research will lead this informative session. Sign up for the AT&T Developer Summit if you haven’t already.
Want to give your app a boost? – 3:30 – 4:15, January 9, 2012
Wireless networks have complex state machines, which drive the resource allocation, as well as the energy consumption of a smartphone. Applications designed without knowledge of the state machine are likely to be slower, consume more energy and cost the user higher usage charges.
The AT&T Labs Research Team will focus on practical design guidelines, to improve the overall performance of the application. They’ll cover the interaction of periodic transfers on the wireless state machine, and discuss strategies for optimized caching for smartphone apps. When finished, you will be exposed to techniques to develop energy efficient applications.
Subhabrata (Shubho) Sen is a Principal Member of Technical Staff at AT&T Labs-Research. His research interests span IP network management, traffic analysis, and network and application performance. He developed enabler technologies such as prefix caching which is now widely used to stream video over the Internet. His research led to the development of methods to analyze the complex cross-layer interactions between applications and cellular networks, and to quantify the various associated inefficiencies. Shubho has published over 70 peer-reviewed research articles, filed more than 35 patent applications and holds 18 issued patents.
Oliver Spatscheck is a Lead Member of Technical staff at AT&T Labs – Research. His research interests include content distribution, network measurement, and cross layer network optimizations. During his twelve years at AT&T he invented and implemented AT&T’s content routing system and cutting edge network measurement tools which can operate at speeds in excess of 80 Gbit/sec. Oliver has published over 50 peer reviewed articles including articles on smartphone application optimization and caching in 3G networks. He is an editorial board member of IEEE Internet Computing. Oliver has filed more than 50 patent applications and holds 21 issued patents. He has also co-authored a book on Web Caching and Replication.
