ABSTRACT This paper introduces a structure of delivering traveler information service including point of interest information through the terrestrial multimedia broadcasting system, in which, the receiver is connected with cellular communication terminal to enable the interactivity of the service. By combining real time traffic information and point of interest information, we could get an efficient traffic and traveler information service system that could be used for many location based applications

    ABSTRACT: Broadcast networks are typically used for distributing common information (music, data) to many users within a given service area, while cellular networks provide point-to-point voice or data delivery to individual users. The fundamental difference from an economic point of view is that cellular networks follow a 'pay-per-use' paradigm with 'per minute' or 'per kbyte' charges, whereas commercial broadcast services (e.g. pay-TV) are charged for by long-term (months or years) subscriptions. In this paper, we investigate a hybrid system for carrying traffic information services. It comprises a data broadcast network for providing the base capacity and a cellular network for carrying the peak traffic exceeding this base capacity. Cellular capacity for the excess data traffic can be purchased whenever needed. However, capacity in broadcast networks is typically leased for long periods of time (potentially several years) at a fixed price. The key problem is how to choose depending on the statistic properties of the input data traffic - the fixed broadcast capacity such that the overall operation cost for the hybrid network is minimized. Results for a telematics service delivering traffic information show that indeed considerable cost savings can be achieved by carefully balancing the capacity allocated in the broadcast network against the peak traffic redirected through the cellular network. The simple analytical model proposed to aid in this tradeoff is validated by simulations.

    ABSTRACT: The increasing ability to interconnect computers through internetworking,wireless networks, high-bandwidth satellite, and cable networks has spawned a new class of information-centered applications based on data dissemination. These applications employ broadcast to deliver data to very large client populations. We have proposed the Broadcast Disks paradigm [Zdon94, Acha95b] for organizing the contents of a data broadcast program and for managing client resources in response to such a program. Our previous workon Broadcast Disks focused exclusively on the "push-based" approach, where data is sent out on the broadcast channel according to a periodic schedule, in anticipation of client requests. In this paper, we study how to augment the push-only model with a "pull-based" approach of using a backchannel to allow clients to send explicit requests for data to the server. We analyze the scalability and performance of a broadcast-based system that integrates push and pull and study the impac...
