Mobile device radio use optimization by batching low priority requests


Systems and methods of mobile device radio use optimization by batching low priority requests are disclosed. In one aspect, embodiments of the present disclosure include a method, which may be implemented on a system, for optimizing radio use on a mobile device. The method includes, in one embodiment, detecting multiple events having a first priority type initiated on the mobile device and cumulating the multiple events having the first priority type, at least some of which occurred at different instances in time for batched wireless transfer. The batch transfer can occur when interactive traffic or user activity is detected at the mobile device.

CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS

This application is a Divisional application of U.S. patent application Ser. No. 13/407,406 entitled “SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR CONSERVING BATTERY CONSUMPTION ON A MOBILE DEVICE,” filed on Feb. 28, 2012, which is a continuation application of U.S. patent application Ser. No. 13/178,598 entitled “CONTEXT AWARE TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT FOR RESOURCE CONSERVATION IN A WIRELESS NETWORK,” filed on Jul. 8, 2011.

BACKGROUND

When WCDMA was specified, there was little attention to requirements posed by applications whose functions are based on actions initiated by the network, in contrast to functions initiated by the user or by the device. Such applications include, for example, push email, instant messaging, visual voicemail and voice and video telephony, and others. Such applications typically require an always-on IP connection and frequent transmit of small bits of data. WCDMA networks are designed and optimized for high-throughput of large amounts of data, not for applications that require frequent, but low-throughput and/or small amounts of data. Each transaction puts the mobile device radio in a high power mode for considerable length of time—typically between 15-30 seconds. As the high power mode can consume as much as 100× the power as an idle mode, these network-initiated applications quickly drain battery in WCDMA networks. The issue has been exacerbated by the rapid increase of popularity of applications with network-initiated functionalities, such as push email.

Lack of proper support has prompted a number of vendors to provide documents to guide their operator partners and independent software vendors to configure their networks and applications to perform better in WCDMA networks. This guidance focuses on: configuring networks to go to stay on high-power radio mode as short as possible and making periodic keep alive messages that are used to maintain an always-on TCP/IP connection as infrequent as possible. Such solutions typically assume lack of coordination between the user, the application and the network.

Furthermore, application protocols may provide long-lived connections that allow servers to push updated data to a mobile device without the need of the client to periodically re-establish the connection or to periodically query for changes. However, the mobile device needs to be sure that the connection remains usable by periodically sending some data, often called a keep-alive message, to the server and making sure the server is receiving this data. While the amount of data sent for a single keep-alive is not a lot and the keep-alive interval for an individual application is not too short, the cumulative effect of multiple applications performing this individually will amount to small pieces of data being sent very frequently. Frequently sending bursts of data in a wireless network also result in high battery consumption due to the constant need of powering/re-powering the radio module.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS

FIG. 1A illustrates an example diagram of a system where a host server facilitates management of traffic between client devices and an application server or content provider in a wireless network for resource conservation.

FIG. 1B illustrates an example diagram of a proxy and cache system distributed between the host server and device which facilitates network traffic management between a device and an application server/content provider for resource conservation.

FIG. 2 depicts a block diagram illustrating an example of client-side components in a distributed proxy and cache system residing on a mobile device that manages traffic in a wireless network for resource conservation.

FIG. 3 depicts a block diagram illustrating an example of server-side components in a distributed proxy and cache system that manages traffic in a wireless network for resource conservation.

FIG. 4 depicts a diagram showing how data requests from a mobile device to an application server/content provider in a wireless network can be coordinated by a distributed proxy system in a manner such that network and battery resources are conserved through using content caching and monitoring performed by the distributed proxy system.

FIG. 5 depicts a diagram showing one example process for implementing a hybrid IP and SMS power saving mode on a mobile device using a distributed proxy and cache system (e.g., such as the distributed system shown in the example of FIG. 1B).

FIG. 6 depicts a flow chart illustrating example processes through which context awareness is used for traffic management.

FIG. 7 depicts a flow chart illustrating an example process for managing traffic in a wireless network based on user interaction with a mobile device.

FIG. 8 depicts a flow chart illustrating another example process for managing traffic in a wireless network based on user interaction with a mobile device.

FIG. 9 depicts a flow chart illustrating an example process for managing traffic initiated from a mobile device in a wireless network through batching of event transfer based on event priority.

FIG. 10 depicts a flow chart illustrating another example process for managing traffic initiated remotely from a mobile device in a wireless network through batching of event transfer based on event priority.

FIG. 11 shows a diagrammatic representation of a machine in the example form of a computer system within which a set of instructions, for causing the machine to perform any one or more of the methodologies discussed herein, may be executed.
