Bringing 5G Smarts to Network Measurement

Principal Investigator:

Dr. Striegel, Department of Computer Science and Engineering

Project Summary:

Traditionally, most network measurement tools such as Speedtest.net and others measure the network in an isolated manner. Further, while peak speed can be interesting, it often fails to capture all of the dynamics of modern wireless networks. The focus of this project is to study the interplay of how sharing various pieces of network information between apps and wireless devices can lead to improved network understanding and performance.

Student’s Role:

Create Linux or mobile app library that can interwork with our suite of Fast Mobile Network approaches and study the interplay/trade-offs with respect to WiFi and cellular network measurement accuracy versus energy consumption.
