Abstract [en]

This work tries to evaluate the user perceived performance in a wireless system based on sparse infrastructure (islands of coverage).We investigate a mobile user in a Manhattan environment and the considered service is web browsing. Data caching in the use terminal is employed in order to hide the discontinuities of coverage. We show that for this particular application, the user's behavior of revisiting pages previously accessed makes caching a way to increase the user perceived coverage. Our results show that at low levels of effective area coverage caching brings a large improvement, while the gain is not significant at high levels. If the sparse coverage network is overlaid over a cellular system the obtained results show potential for significant cost savings.
