Recognizing the twin trends of a rapid growth of cellular data services and the commoditization of WiFi WLAN technology, Cool-Tether proposes an architecture for ubiquitous and affordable connectivity by harnessing mobile smartphones to create WiFi hotspots on the fly. Cool-Tether optimizes heavily for battery energy consumption on the smartphones, resulting in a 38%-72% savings in energy consumption compared to prior energy-agnostic solutions for tethering.
