Estimation of Expectable Network Quality in Wireless Mesh Networks

Abstract : Our work aims to improve the usability of wireless mesh networks as communication layer of smart office environments. While wireless mesh networks are well-suited for this task in general, the negative impact of interference, fading, and saturation makes the communication basically opportunistic. Our goal is to develop a system which allows a short-term estimation of network quality in terms of throughput, packet loss and latency. The estimation is based on channel measurements and detected high-level activities. With the estimated quality, we expect a significant improvement to user assistance and a speed-up of device integration. In this work-in-progress paper, we define the fundamental problem and its background and design a system that is suitable to solve the problem. We also present some preliminary results from ongoing experiments we carry out in a custom indoor test bed.
