Reliable and User Friendly Low Bandwidth Web Surfing - Performance and Reliability Improvements of a Proxy Server and Web Browser Prototype

Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för data- och informationsteknik

Sammanfattning: In remote locations, internet access can be enabled using satellite connections, suchas the Iridium Satellite Network. The Iridium GO! device provides a bandwidth of2.4 kbit/s. On such a low bandwidth it would take hours to download most modernwebsites.In 2018, a prototype which enables general web browsing on a low bandwidth wasdeveloped at Charmers. The prototype acts as a proof of concept for the use of aperformance enhancing proxy server to extract data in order to reduce content sizeand achieve viable loading times.The 2019 prototype replaces components of the 2018 iteration, providing a fasterand more reliable service. In particular, no excess data is being sent and the delaycaused by compression and data extraction is notably shorter, resulting in a 66%reduction on average to the time between sending a request and the moment thefirst content arrives to the client.
