About the Edition

Prefetching has been shown to be an effective technique for reducing resource cost and delay in heterogeneous wireless networks. However, in modern wireless local area networks, there is little centralized management, with no control of upper-level functions such as prefetching, and so users are free to behave selfishly. This work focuses on how pricing can be used to control the suboptimality that results from prefetching and selfish users in heterogeneous wireless networks, and how the perceived cost for the user can be optimized. We derive an analytic model to characterize the optimal network and Nash Equilibrium prefetching strategies. We present a pricing scheme that optimizes the best achievable perceived cost when the network is in a Nash Equilibrium. Finally, we study the effects of network load, the value of time, and user mobility on the optimal pricing scheme.

Pricing in Heterogeneous Wireless Networks: Hierarchical Games and Dynamics Luca Rose, Elena Veronica Belmega, Walid Saad, Mérouane Debbah. Unlike other pricing management proposals, which reflect the maximization of profits from the points of view either of service provider or users, our proposal considers both (service providers and users’ satisfaction) by using a flexible QoS-based pricing approach for heterogeneous wireless access networks.

end-users’ willingness to pay and the QoS metric are taken into account to develop the optimal pricing algorithm. The proposed pricing scheme can determine an optimal price in order to maximize the revenue, while maintaining the traffic intensity and the maximum of end-users, S, at the AP to a reasonable level.
