Nowadays, the operating system for mobile devices Android is taking a leading
position within the world of smartphones and tablets. The growth that it is
experiencing is very significant and everyday more than 550,000 new mobile
devices governed by Android are sold worldwide. For this reason it is very
interesting to research on progresses in this field.
One of the most used features in this sense is the ability to transmit data
between two devices through an internet connection. That is why in this thesis it
has been implemented a traffic generator (as an Android application) that allows
sending and receiving data simultaneously, being able to choose the type of
data to be sent. Thus, four emulated types of data has been transmitted
(videos, websites, online games and Skype) in three different environments (in
the Android Device Emulator, via WiFi, and connected to the 3G network).
The final goal is to find out how Android manages sending and receiving
packets. To do this, after performing all the necessary tests, the results are
deeply analyzed to empirically conclude which is the most appropriate
connection type for the transmission of different traffic types, being WiFi the
best choice to transmit them. In the near future, applications will be able to
optimize its performance by taking advantage of this knowledge.
