We are witnessing an unprecedented worldwide growth of mobile data traffic. However, traditional network expansion methods by acquiring more spectrum licenses, deploying new macrocells, and upgrading technologies are costly and time-consuming. Clearly, network operators must find novel methods to resolve the mismatch between demand and supply growth, and mobile data offloading appears as one of the most attractive solutions. Mobile data offloading is the use of complementary network technologies, such as WiFi and femtocell, for delivering data traffic originally targeted for cellular networks. In this talk, we will survey the opportunities and challenges of mobile data offloading, and introduce our recent results on the design of optimal delayed offloading protocols and offloading market mechanisms. This is a joint work with Lin Gao and Man Hong Cheung from The Chinese University of Hong Kong, and George Iosifidis and Leandros Tassiulas from Yale University.

Bio: Jianwei Huang is an Associate Professor and Director of the Network Communications and Economics Lab (, in the Department of Information Engineering at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. He received Ph.D. from Northwestern University in 2005, and worked as a Postdoc Researcher at Princeton University in 2005-07. His main research interests are in the area of network economics and games, with applications in wireless communications, networking, and smart grid.
