Abstract: The research focuses on improving performance of mobile thin clients in wireless environments where network costs are high due to limited bandwidth and latency. Thin client architecture provides a means for platform independent computing, enabling any kind of device to operate any kind of application through any kind of network connection. Mobile computing and thin clients intersect in the use of resource-poor handheld devices with slow or expensive network connections. The architecture, using powerful servers, converts any kind of mobile device to a capable computer. The thesis focuses on improvements of multimedia applications run through the thin client architecture. The optimizations reduce the network traffic between the server and the client through localization of multimedia content in the client. The client locally simulates the "active components" that are present in the application's display, without getting any help from the application or restricting the application domain.
