Abstract Cellular networks, especially 3G networks, are currently overloaded with mobile data traffic. It is thus imperative to develop novel communication architectures and protocols for this problem. In this paper, we propose to exploit the delay-tolerant nature of non-realtime applications to offload mobile data traffic through opportunistic communications and WiFi networks. We argue that it is necessary for cellular network operators, WiFi service providers, and end-users to cooperate to make the offloading more effective. We also present several preliminary experiment results about the work we have been conducting, which show that it is promising to offload mobile data traffic in metropolitan area networks.
