iCellSpeed at MobiCom’20 Increases 4.5G Data Speed without Any Network Changes!
September 23, 2020
Three graduate students from Purdue and UCLA led by Prof Peng have conducted one more success story over MI-LAB. In this project, they have proposed iCellSpeed, an on-device solution to increase data access speed without any network change to substantiate unrealized data speed potentials. They have designed iCellSpeed to facilitate network-controlled cell selection with proactive device-side assistance towards more desirable cells that are able to offer higher data speed than the default ones. They have validated its effectiveness in AT&T and Verizon networks. iCellSpeed has increased data access speed by more than 10 Mbps at 79% of test locations (> 25Mbps at 29% of locations, up to 80.6 Mbps). It doubles access speed at 62.5% of locations with the gain up to 28.4x.
Here is a 5-minute pitch at Youtube for more information.
MI-LAB Adopted to Assess COVID-19 Impacts on US Carrier Networks
May 1, 2020
MI-LAB will be used to conduct a new project recently funded by NSF CNS-2027650 to assess the impact on operational mobile networks (namely, AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile) in face of COVID-19 pandemic. This measurement study will leverage MI-LAB to take a novel on-device measurement approach. We aim to measure and diagnose performance and reliability of the national 4G/4.5G mobile networks. In the short-term, our objective is to meet the immediate need of assessing operational mobile networks, unveiling technical issues, understanding their pressing challenges, and proposing remedies without major infrastructure upgrade during this public health crisis. In the long term, datasets collected by this project will be released to the public, empowering data-driven software solutions to efficiently utilize enhanced network capabilities and accelerate 5G innovations in mobile network research community.
Call For Participators: If you are interested in participating this measurement study, please download mperf task and run it. Please contact us if you have any question or interest.
One More Success Story Over MI-LAB
March 3, 2020
Three graduate students led by Prof Peng have conducted one more study over MI-LAB. This study has unveiled an important, yet unexplored problem in operational mobile networks: missed performance potentials exist in the operational mobile networks but have not been realized. The devices fail to achieve faster broadband experience despite its feasibility over the same network infrastructure. More information regarding this study can be found here. Datasets have been released at the <MI-LAB data repo and preliminary results have appeared at ACM Hotmobile’20, Unveiling the Missed 4.5G Performance in the Wild.
MI-LAB Testbed Management is available
August 26, 2019
Admins can control users' mobile phones, manage the tasks remotely through the MI-LAB website. They can observe the location, the current status, the latest updates of users' phone, all the data uploaded from users' phone and more updated features which makes MI-LAB admins easier and faster to manage.
