The first Phd / Postdoc seminar of the 2018 / 2019 calendar will follow the work of DANTE’s Marija Stojanova, who will present her recent research on wireless networks. In particular, we will discuss conflict-graph based models of Wifi.
Abstract – “We describe a performance modeling method that can provide guidance for configuring WLANs and be used as a decision-support tool by a network architect or as an algorithm embedded within a WLAN controller. The proposed approach estimates the attained throughput of each AP using a Divide-and-Conquer strategy which breaks down the original problem into multiple sub-problems. Every sub-problem is solved as a Markov chain and the solutions are then combined to provide the solution to the original problem. ”
