Mobile data offloading can help the mobile network operator (MNO) cope with the explosive growth of cellular traffic, by delivering mobile traffic through third-party access points. However, the access point owners (APOs) would need proper incentives to participate in data offloading. In this paper, we consider a data offloading market that includes both price-taking and price-setting APOs. We... Read more on IEEE Xplore

Since the boom of smartphones and location-based services, spatio-temporal data (i.e., user locations with timestamps) have become increasingly essential in many real-life applications. To ensure these data are faithfully extracted from the underlying location tracking hardware and not altered by any malicious party or the user himself/herself, integrity assurance schemes such as digital...

With a wide range of applications, Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication has become an emerging technology for connecting generic machines to the Internet. To ensure ubiquity in connections across all machines, it is necessary to have a standard infrastructure, such as 3GPP LTE-A network infrastructure, that facilitates such type of communications. However, owing to the huge scale of<?query... Read more on IEEE Xplore

We consider the problem of controlling the rate of failures triggered by fatigue processes of Base Stations (BSs) in cellular networks subject to Sleep Modes (SMs). Specifically, the increase of time spent in SM tends to decrease the BS failure rate by following, e.g., the Arrhenius law. However, the transitions between the power states tend to increase the BS failure rate, which can be predicted... Read more on IEEE Xplore

Full charge capacity (FCC) refers to the amount of charge a battery can hold. It is the fundamental property of smartphone batteries that diminishes as the battery ages and is charged/discharged. We investigate the behavior of smartphone batteries while charging and demonstrate that battery voltage and charging rate information can together characterize the FCC of a battery. We propose a new... Read more on IEEE Xplore
