ABSTRACT
Mobile devices cannot rely on a single managed network, but
must exploit a wide variety of connectivity options as they
travel. We argue that such systems must consider the deriva-
tive of connectivity--the changes inherent in movement be-
tween separately managed networks, with widely varying
capabilities. With predictive knowledge of such changes,
devices can more intelligently schedule network usage.
To exploit the derivative of connectivity, we observe that
