Note: Text based on automatic Optical Character Recognition processes. Please use the PDF version for legal matters

CLAIMS

What is claimed is:

1. A portable communication device comprising:
a data analysis component that monitors stimuli associated with a device; and a mobility policy manager (MPM) component that provides balancing of network connectivity and power consumption based at least in part upon the monitored stimuli.

2. The portable communication device of claim 1, the data analysis component monitors at least one of network traffic, an internet protocol address, and a port number.

3. The portable communication device of claim 1, the MPM component comprising a policy module that determines a policy based at least in part on the monitored stimuli.

4. The portable communication device of claim 1 , the MPM component comprising an alter module that alters at least one policy to provide an optimal device power consumption.

5. The portable communication device of claim 4, the MPM component further comprising a tolerance parameter module that ensures the policy remains within a predetermined power consumption range.

6. The portable communication device of claim 1, the MPM component comprising a hysteresis module that prevents excessive altering between multiple device states.

7. The portable communication device of claim 1, the MPM component comprising a persistence module that allows the device to remain in a non-optimal state during a communication.

8. The portable communication device of claim 7, the non-optimal state is maintained until completion of the communication.

9. The portable communication device of claim 1, the MPM component comprising a packet route management module that controls a connectivity of a first network adapter and at least a second network adapter that are powered at a substantially similar time.

10. The portable communication device of claim 1, the MPM component comprising a designate module that designates at least one connection.

11. The portable communication device of claim 11 , the designate module overrides a connection to force one of an outcome and a route.

12. The portable communication device of claim 1, the MPM component comprising a route module that hinders traffic in the absence of an appropriate route.

13. The portable communication device of claim 12, the route module comprising a categorization module that categorizes connections that distinguishes between requirements to create a new route and preference of an existing route.

14. The portable communication device of claim 12, the route module comprising a firewall module that restricts traffic if an appropriate route is not available.

15. A communication architecture, comprising:
a network that includes a plurality of resources;
a data analysis component that captures data about the plurality of resources; and a mobility policy manager (MPM) component that determines a policy to obtain efficient network connectivity and power consumption based at least in part on the captured data.

16. The communication architecture of claim 15, the captured data comprising at least one statistic based on network traffic associated with an Internet Protocol address or a port number end point.

17. The communication architecture of claim 15, the MPM component
dynamically alters a predefined policy based at least in part upon the captured data.

18. A method for dynamically managing network connection performance, comprising:
creating an initial policy;
monitoring the initial policy; and
automatically altering the initial policy to achieve at least one policy objective.

19. The method of claim 18, the initial policy is created based upon at least one statistic derived from device conditions.

20. The method of claim 18, automatically altering the initial policy further comprising:
determining a state of a connection;
ascertaining if the connection is complete; and
maintaining the connection state until communication is complete.

21. The method of claim 18, automatically altering the initial policy further includes one of allowing, denying, and rejecting traffic.

22. A computer readable medium of a portable device to efficiently manage network connections, comprising:
a data analysis component operable to monitor device conditions; and
a mobility policy manager component that dynamically alters a policy to achieve at least one policy objective.

23. The computer readable medium of claim 22, the mobility policy manager provides balancing of network connectivity and power consumption based at least in part on the monitored device conditions.

24. The computer readable medium of claim 22, an initial policy is created based at least in part on the monitored device conditions.

25. A portable communication system, comprising:
means for monitoring device connectivity and power consumption;
means for creating a policy based at least in part on the monitored device connectivity and power consumption; and
means for altering the policy based on monitored operating conditions.
