The need for adaptive network application architectures
by Nasiriamini, Sourena, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2010, 70; 1490321
Abstract (Summary)

As the proliferation of wireless networks and network capable devices grows, the tools and technologies built around these systems and devices need to evolve to further enable more seamless integration and interoperability between the hardware infrastructure and the devices on a massive scale. As it stands today, there is a disparity between the networks and network enabled devices, software, and topologies that enable and facilitate communication between them. To achieve a robust and flexible model, research on this and related topics shows there is a need to support concurrent applications that can share network devices, resources, and traffic in order to enable applications and solutions to become more efficient, cost effective, and feasible. It can further be shown that using a sound architectural model and style would have benefits in terms of QoS, energy efficiency, reliability, and results in overall cost reductions on a given deployment involving hundreds to thousands of connected devices. The purpose of this thesis is to provide a study of the recent efforts made towards creation and adaptability of applications on wired and wirelessly networked environments, show evidence in support of the proposed need for a adaptive architectures, and to present a new high level architectural view of technologies that could enable adaptive applications to become a reality. The presented tools, technologies and the results of this effort are derived from research that are related to both software application development and network application design and development which in one way or another voice the mood for adaptive and generic architectures.
