This paper presents a distributed proxy solution that enables energy efficient BitTorrent downloads for mobile devices. Instead of using a single proxy, this work focuses on using multiple proxy servers to achieve better bandwidth utilization and thus smaller mobile energy consumption. We present an analytical model that can be used to experiment with different proxy setup and evaluate them from the energy perspective. In addition to the analysis, measurements with mobile devices were also carried out to validate the multiproxy concept and the analytical model.
