Trento University participates in the project with the
Computer Netowrks and Mobility
research group of the
Department of Informatics and Telecommunication.
The PI of the Research Unit (RU) is
Renato Lo Cigno, who coordinates the activity of the RU, that includes also the personnel participating in the project
from the Telecommunication Networks Research Group of
Politecnico di Torino
The people of Trento University currently officially
involved in the project are (in alphabetical order):
Alessandro Villani ,
head of the group lab, provides the usual exceptional support to make the group work,
and keep us updated with new devices and technical innovations.
Current Research Activities
NicolŔ Pernigo, Alessandro Villani and
Renato Lo Cigno are designing, verifying and implementing
a IAPP protocol intended to support distributed ESS coordination
and management, including aspects related to service provisioning,
service differentiation and WoS management.
Traffic Measures and Characterization
The RU is collecting traffic data from the Faculty ESS.
Danilo Severina will start elaboration of the traces
with Tstat in february/march 2005,
possibly in cooperation with Politecnico di Torino.
Michele Zanolli and Renato Lo Cigno are developing a
modeling methodology based on queueing networks with
the ambitious goal of modeling 802.11 MAC protocols
both in saturation and non-saturation conditions, including
the possibility of stations joining and leaving the system.
The methodology should result flexible enough to permit
including priorities and service differentiation aspects.
