Commute Path Bandwidth Traces from 3G Networks: Analysis and Applications
In this dataset paper, the authors present and make available real-world measurements of the throughput that was achieved at the application layer when adaptive HTTP streaming was performed over 3G networks using mobile devices. For the streaming sessions, they used popular commute routes in and around Oslo (Norway) traveling with different types of public transportation (metro, tram, train, bus and ferry). They also have a few logs using a car. Each log provides a timestamp, GPS coordinates and the measured number of bytes downloaded for approximately every second of the route. The dataset can be used in several ways, but the most obvious application is to emulate the same network bandwidth behavior (on specific geographical positions) for repeated experiments.
