Predictability of WLAN Mobility and Its Effects on Bandwidth Provisioning
Source: Dartmouth College
Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs) are emerging as a popular technology for access to the Internet and enterprise networks. In the long term, the success of WLANs depends on services that support mobile network clients. Although other researchers have explored mobility prediction in hypothetical scenarios, evaluating their predictors analytically or with synthetic data, few studies have been able to evaluate their predictors with real user mobility data. This paper explores the predictability of the time of user mobility.
