2013 Poster Sessions : Co-Ordinated Management for Dense WiFi Networks

Student Name : Yiannis Yiakoumis
Advisor : Nick McKeown
Research Areas: Computer Systems
Abstract:
It's typical for home networks to operate within a highly dense WiFi deployment, where they interfere and content for the same resources with neighboring networks. Today this happens on a chaotic, un-coordinated way. We explore how to improve the network performance on a neighborhood-scale using a centralized architecture.
