Colloquium - Gunningberg

ECOT 831

A Real-World Test-Bed for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks: Methodology, Experimentations, Simulation and Results
Uppsala University, Sweden

The talk will focus on two parts:

  • The first part will be on how to design a test-bed of real ad hoc nodes moving around in an office environment. The main challenge is how to create experimental repeatability when nodes are carried around by humans under varying radio conditions.

  • The second part of the talk will be on the value of combining simulation, emulation and real world test-beds for the same testing scenario. Results will be presented that are not visible in simulations. Protocol constructs that improve performance in simulations are shown to degrade performance in the real world.

Per Gunningberg is a Professor in Computer Communication at the University of Uppsala, Sweden. He leads the Computer Communication group CoRe, at the department of Information Technology. His most recent work includes test-beds for wireless ad hoc networks, content adaptation overlay networks, intermittent networking, bandwidth measurements, and vertical handover of voice streams. He holds a PhD from Uppsala University in 1983, and a MS from University of California, Los Angeles, in 1981. Before joining Uppsala University in 1995 he was at the Swedish Institute of Computer Science. He has recently been an associate editor for the IEEE Transaction of Mobile Computing and a member of the Technical Advisory Committee for ACM SIGCOMM. In June 2006 he co-organized ACM MobiSys. He is a co-founder of the startup company OptiMobile (2003).

The Department holds colloquia throughout the Fall and Spring semesters. These colloquia, open to the public, are typically held on Thursday afternoons, but sometimes occur at other times as well. If you would like to receive email notification of upcoming colloquia, subscribe to our Colloquia Mailing List. If you would like to schedule a colloquium, see Colloquium Scheduling.

Sign language interpreters are available upon request. Please contact Stephanie Morris at least five days prior to the colloquium.
