Abstract

Today's smartphones and tablet PCs are equipped with various sensor units and wireless capabilities along with high performance computing units, which make these mobile devices capable of providing a wide range of services. Because of such characteristics, mobile devices consume more network traffic and frequently use multiple Internet services at the same time. The performance degradation of a foreground service happens frequently due to concurrently running background services in a mobile device. In this paper, we propose NetPIS, Network Performance Isolation Scheme for QoE, which resolves the aforementioned problem by applying the concept of performance isolation to the foreground service. NetPIS is the receiver-based scheme suitable for mobile devices without any modification on senders. Furthermore, unlike most performance isolation implemented by virtual machines, we suggest a scheme that does not require virtualization that might be heavy for mobile devices. The proposed scheme was implemented on a smartphone by modifying the kernel, and various experiments were conducted to evaluate the advanced system behavior of NetPIS.
