GN4-3 WiFiMon - Wireless Crowdsourced Performance Monitoring for Campus Networks
Time 12/12/19 08:30AM-08:50AM
WiFiMon is designed for eduroam enabled, or campus wireless networks based on IEEE802.1X. WiFiMon allows measuring, recording and exporting statistics regarding network performance (latency, bandwidth). These measurements are correlated with the identity of the users (Radius Logs) and their location, i.e. the Access Point they are connected to. Measurements are triggered by users (mobile clients) when they visit WiFiMon-enabled websites and/or using WiFiMon-enabled mobile applications. Crowdsourced and traditional, deterministic measurements from appropriately placed hardware probes on the campus are combined to generate performance statements from various mobile clients. This called as hybrid approach provides us with the “best” data sets, which are applicable to address technical and strategic issues as well as make predictions about the future state of the network.
