PTC : Proxies that Transcode and Cache in Heterogeneous Web Client Environments
Advances in computing and communication technologies have resulted in a wide variety of networked mobile devices that access data over the Internet. In this paper, we argue that servers by themselves may not be able to handle this diversity in client characteristics and intermediate proxies should be employed to handle the mismatch between the server-supplied data and the client capabilities. Since existing proxies are primarily designed to handle traditional wired hosts, such proxy architectures will need to be enhanced to handle mobile devices. We propose such an enhanced proxy architecture that is capable of handling the heterogeneity in client needs—specifically the variations in client bandwidth and display capabilities. Our architecture combines transcoding (which is used to match the fidelity of the requested object to client capabilities) and caching (which is used to reduce the latency for accessing popular objects). Our proxies can intelligently adapt to prevailing syste...
