att_abstract={{We consider a problem of managing Firmware Over-The-Air (FOTA)
updates for cars at a massive scale over a cellular network. This
problem is constrained by factors like large number of cars, a need
to perform updates quickly and securely, ability to do the update
anywhere and any time, and delivering the often large update without
harming the network. We present a scheduling approach for
managing large FOTA downloads in a cellular network that combines
historical network load with car usage and location analytics.
The proposed approach uses a combination of heuristics and an
optimized scheduler and applies them to schedule the admission of
cars to download FOTA.
We show that a network-scale analysis involving 1 million cars
and nearly 1 billion radio-level network connections is possible
and practical, and that it is possible to manage FOTA even when
device and network models use high levels of aggregation over
time. Using simulations based on real network data from a large
cellular provider, we show that our method improves over random
uncontrolled approach by (i) reducing median download startup
delay by 48%, (ii) reducing the number of cars that don’t complete
the update by 10% and most importantly, (iii) reducing the load in
busy cells by up to 37%.}},
