In many enterprises today, middleboxes called WAN optimizers are deployed across WAN access links in order to eliminate redundancy in network traffic and reduce WAN access costs. However, middleboxes do not cope well with end-to-end encrypted traffic and do not improve performance of mobile smartphones operating over wireless links. In this talk, we present the design and implementation of EndRE, an end system-based redundancy elimination service. Since the service relies on opportunistically leveraging resources on end hosts, EndRE is designed to be adaptive, asymmetric and parsimonious in resource usage. Based on the enterprise traffic traces, testbed experiments and a pilot deployment, we show that EndRE delivers ~30% bandwidth savings, processes payloads at speeds of 1.5-4Gbps, and translates bandwidth savings into equivalent energy savings on mobile smartphones.
