Mobile Insight Visualization

[March 14, 2019] For our upcoming site visit related to PAWR, our team wrote a visualization tool for RSRP / RSRQ from MobileInsight.  Kudos to my student Gonzalo Martinez who wrote an Android app to export Mobile Insight files, ship them over MQTT, parse them, and then re-package them as JSON via MQTT, for the C# visualization app that I crafted together for a demo.  We will package up the source code and share it for anyone who might be interested.

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.

Paper: Leveraging Frame Aggregation for Estimating WiFi Available Bandwidth

(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.

Paper: Redundancy Elimination Might Be Overrated: A Quantitative Study on Wireless Traffic

(March 7, 2017) Our paper entitled “Redundancy Elimination Might Be Overrated: A Quantitative Study on Wireless Traffic” was accepted to the INFOCOM workshop covering edge computing, caching, and offloading.  This work drew from our NSF EAGER grant covering redundancy across a wide variety of environments (South Shore commuter train, University Relations tent, classroom).
