Proxy Server Systems for Wireless Mobile Web Service
Outline Introduction Related Works Problem Statement Wireless Proxy Server Deployment Single Distributed Discussion and Ideals
Introduction The characteristics of wireless networks Unfixed and lower bandwidth Higher transmission error rate Different MH hardware type How to provide proper services and qualities for each mobile user is important.
Related works J. F. Bartlett, W4 – the Wireless World Wide Web, Workshop on Mobile Computing Systems and Applications, Dec. 1994, pp Designed for PDA-based wireless browser. Maintained a proxy to parse a HTML documents into multiple screens. The proxy sends the preformatted screens to client using a new protocol.
Related works S. Gessler and A. Kotulla, PDAs as Mobile WWW Browsers, Electronic Proc. Second World Wide Web Conference 94: Mosaic and the Web, Oct The HTML documents was parsed by client. The client communicates with the proxy also using a new protocol. Images won t be transferred until the client request them.
Related works T. B. Fleming, S. F. Midkiff, and N.J. Davis, Improving the Performance of the World Wide Web over Wireless Networks, GLOBECOM 97. Designed a new protocol, named MHSP, to replace the HTTP used between AP and MH. Prefetching Image reduction

Discussion Proxy deployment area Too large: degrading to single proxy scenario The capability of MH should be more simple or complicated? How to satisfy all type of service? Not only WWW …
