GÉANT WIFI Community Meeting:

The aim of the meeting is to present various ways of monitoring and detecting performance degradations on large scale WIFI installations. The meeting will present two different methods to monitor WIFI networks:

  • Static HW probes presented by UNINETT (Arne Øslebø)
  • Crowd sourced SW probes presented by HEANet/GÉANT (Dave Wilson/James Healy)

The agenda for the community meeting furthermore includes:

Background and Reasoning

  • Architecture / Road Map
  • Hands on installations - Demo
  • Collaborations and further steps

As part of the above presentations hands on instructions will be given with the aim that participating institutions may pilot the above tools in their own environment.

The event is open to colleges/universities/nrens  in the NORDICs that operate major WIFI installations.
