Abstract:In this report, we present a study in which we look into the possibilities of predicting end-to-end network connection characteristics on mobile handheld devices based on historical data. These characteristics include throughput, packet-loss and round trip time. We base these predictions on a relevant timeframe in the past and the interface they were recorded on. We also present a software framework that performs the measurements, the storage and the prediction of end-to-end network characteristics. This framework helped us researching the possibilities of predicting end-to-end network characteristics. We designed this framework to solve several issues encountered in the mobile environment. We ran two experiments to research the possibilities of predicting network characteristics. The first experiment showed us that there are patterns of network characteristics in time. Using this collected data, we show in the second experiment that there are possibilities of predicting network characteristics. We conclude that there is a possibility to predict end-to-end network characteristics based on historical data and that our framework is able to do this.
