Abstract:Connectivity management in heterogeneous wireless networks can be done combining context-aware techniques, aiming at perform optimal handovers. For instance, mobility and QoS predictors use, as input, georeferenced historical network context data. Moreover, the predictor's accuracy is strongly related to the quality of this required data set. In this work we propose a community-based solution to allow mobile users collaborate to discover wireless connectivity islands. Also, we introduce a smart way to summarize and delivery connectivity context data. It is result of a prototying effort and we focus the discussion on its feasibility in terms of storage size, power consumption and QoS metrics.
