In today’s Internet, there is an ever increasing diversity in the form of heterogeneous client devices, new network services, and diverse user applications. This talk presents two systems—Catnap and Vigilante—that add more intelligence at the network edge to address various problems caused by this increased diversity. Catnap buffers data at typical home middleboxes (e.g., wireless access points) during data transfers, allowing mobile devices to sleep for significant duration of time with little or no impact on transfer times. This results in up to 2-5x improvement in battery life for typical mobile devices. Vigilante turns these home middleboxes into personal data centers for storing and distributing social networking content within a social community. This results in better performance for end-users and reduced cost for the service provider.
