Contrail

Contrail is an asynchronous network architecture that uses the cloud to relay messages between 3G devices. It enables data-sharing applications that are bandwidth and power-efficient, non-intrusive, privacy-aware and supports decoupled communication between devices with non-overlapping periods of connectivity. We have implemented Contrail within Windows Azure and created several sample applications executing across Windows Mobile devices. The project is led by Patrick Stuedi.

A video that describes Contrail and demos some of the applications we have built is available here.
