Title: The Nuts and Bolts of Large-scale Wireless Monitoring and Diagnosis
Speaker: Rong Zheng - University of Houston (CS)
Monitoring and diagnosis of large scale operational wireless networks are becoming a pertinent issue both because of the exponential growth of wireless devices and usage, as well as the increasing vulnerability due to complex interactions at various layers of the protocol stack. Faults, intrusions, anomalies in wireless domain could lead to denial of services of legitimate users and endanger the performance of safe critical applications. In this talk, we present our ongoing work on the design of wireless monitoring algorithms and systems with focus on 1) WiSeRAnalyzer, a trace collection and analysis framework, 2) efficient channel allocation schemes of wireless sniffers.
