[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.
[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.

[June 15, 2018] Great workshop in Amsterdam for NOSSDAV 2018. I had the pleasure of presenting my student Lixing’s paper entitled “SEWS: A Channel-Aware Stall-Free WiFi Video Streaming Mechanism” at the workshop in addition to serving as a session chair for the first session. Very well attended workshop and lots of great questions.
[April 24, 2018] Congrats to Lixing Song on getting his paper entitled “SEWS: A Channel-Aware Stall-Free WiFi Video Streaming Mechanism” accepted to appear at NOSSDAV 2018 in Amsterdam in June.
(March 14, 2017) Our paper entitled “Leveraging Frame Aggregation for Estimating WiFi Available Bandwidth” was accepted into IEEE SECON 2017 (26% acceptance rate). The work is the second one under the Fast Mobile Network Characterization umbrella. This work focuses on the potential to use reflected aggregation (client-mod free) as observed by A-MPDU frame characteristics for inferring the available bandwidth of a link ranging across a wide variety of speeds.

(March 3, 2017) Our paper entitled “Leveraging Frame Aggregation to Improve Access Point Selection” has been accepted to appear at the INFOCOM International Workshop on Mobility Management in the Networks of the Future World (MobiWorld) workshop at INFOCOM 2017 to be held in Atlanta, GA in early May.
