WiFi is Hot!

[September 1, 2018] For each home game at Notre Dame, our group provides WiFi for the University Relations tent on Irish Green.  For a high profile game such as the Michigan game, there are a few more challenges with the crowd density as well as nearby other tests.  Our WiFi gear has been newly re-racked in our WiFi “cart” as you can see below.

The WiFi seemed to fare OK though there are certainly some nice improvements that we can make for the next home game both to the cart as well as how we mount gear to the side of the tent.  More to come over the next few weeks with respect to the WiFi service and general performance estimates as we start to deploy our Fast Mobile Network Characterization app across the tent and various scattered Raspberry Pis in the tent.

Presentation at ICCCN 2018 on FMNC

[August 1st, 2018] Great conference at ICCCN 2018 in Hangzhou, China.  Had a chance to catch up with lots of familiar faces now having attended ICCCN for the past 7 years straight.  Great to meet up with my former student, Qi Liao, who also had a paper at ICCCN.  On Wednesday, I presented our base work on Fast Mobile Network Characterization (FMNC) which was an invited paper at ICCCN.  A really solid work done by my student that has laid the foundation on much of our work in this area.
