Subproject B3 develops novel algorithms for decentralized analysis and planning of transitions in communication systems from an economic cross-layer perspective taking into account empirically collected user preferences. A key assumption is that nodes at the edge of the Internet decide individually and autonomously whether transitions between different mechanisms should be performed. The developed algorithms are investigated analytically, by simulation as well as experimentally based on examples of cross-layer application scenarios in wireless edge networks of software-defined autonomous nodes with particular focus on proactive transitions and coexistence of multi-mechanisms.
