FloorNet: Deployment and Evaluation of a Multihop Wireless 802.11 Testbed

Free registration required

Executive Summary

A lot of attention has been given to multihop wireless networks lately, but further research - in particular, through experimentation - is needed. This attention has motivated an increase in the number of 802.11-based deployments, both indoor and outdoor. These testbeds, which require a significant amount of resources during both deployment and maintenance, are used to run measurements in order to analyze and understand the limitation and differences between analytical or simulation-based figures and the results from real-life experimentation. This paper makes two major contributions: first, the authors describe a novel wireless multihop testbed, which they name FloorNet that is deployed and operated under the false floor of a lab in the computer science building.
