Titel / Title: Evaluation of Smartphone Network Performance
Abstrakt Abstract:

Nowadays most Desktop based softwares, operating system (OS) and applications features are being adapted to Smartphones (SMPs). The simplicity and mobility of SMPs are some of the qualities which make them interesting to run different network applications. In order to develop mobile applications with efficient functionality and competitive in marketability, application developers need to have knowledge on network performance of SMPs.

In this thesis, an experimental based methodology is provided to evaluate the effect of transmission patterns on One Way Delay (OWD), throughput and packet loss across designed setup for different SMPs. Based on these metrics the SMPs have been compared with each other under the same experimental setting with relatively higher accuracy of measurement techniques. For accurate measurement DAG 3.6E card together with GPS for synchronization is used to capture traffic for further analysis. To avoid undeterministic inputs in the network, the experiment is made to be in a controlled and continuously monitored wireless local area network. Moreover the nodes or sub networks constituting the entire network are evaluated to conceive the effects on the estimated output. From this work application developers will have the opportunity to design their application according to the network performance of SMPs and users are also able to select suitable applications and SMPs.
