Advancing Out-of-Band Network Measurement for Multi-Hop Sensor Networks

This collaborative project with Rimeware will investigate out-of-band measurement approaches that can passively monitor the network traffic and provide rich detailed network information, e.g., latency, loss, route path, etc. The goal is to build a programmable system for accurate, generic, and robust network measurement. It includes two sub projects. In the first sub-project, we will research the sniffer deployment problem with lossy and correlated link models and develop a set of instructions that provide programmable interfaces for network administrators. In addition, we plan to build a set of programmable interfaces that are in highly abstract forms, which can simplify various typical network tasks from thousands of lines of code to just dozens. In the second sub-project, we intend to investigate the trace synchronization problem and build a range of measurement applications for multi-hop sensors networks. TO BE CONT’D
