Title: Moving Measurements: Measuring Network Characteristics of Mobile Cellular Networks on the Move
Published: Computer Communications 97 (1 January 2017), pp. 81-95, 2016
Keyword(s): Available data rate, Available bandwidth, Network measurement, Mobile cellular network
Abstract: Trace-based simulation of mobile cellular communication requires valid measurements of real-world delay, available data rate and packet loss. These network characteristics need to be measured simultaneously and with high frequency. Previously introduced measurement methods either do not combine the measurement of all three key network characteristics, suffer from low measurement frequencies or are not able to adapt to rapidly changing network conditions. In this paper we propose a novel measurement method that allows the simultaneous measurement of those three key characteristics for both communication directions while moving at high speed. Furthermore it is able to adapt to rapidly changing network conditions.
