On data transfer between mobile web clients

Andrei Stephenson, Dmitry Namiot


In this paper, the authors will conduct a comparative analysis of the following methods of data transfer between mobile web clients: Content Delivery Networks (CDN), Cloud Computing, Peer-to-Peer networking, and WebRTC. By first describing the structure and functionality of each of the main methods of data transfer, and the advantages/disadvantages and social implications associated with them, the author will be able to conclude which method is most effective for on-demand data transfer between individual clients.
