Intelligent Channel Management for Wireless Mesh Networks

ICSI's TCS team is working with Facebook to build and evaluate a system wide network channel management tool for a wireless mesh network. The aim of the collaboration is to increase wireless capacity, decrease interference between devices (self and external), and provide more automated and intelligent network channel management and planning.

Enhancements for Wireless Mesh Networks

ICSI's TCS team is working with Facebook to simulate, understand and enhance wireless mesh networks. The main goal of the effort is to build a high fidelity simulator for wireless mesh networks to understand the performance scaling of such networks and improve coverage, density, throughput. Potential enhancements include extending the reach and performance of wireless mesh networks i.e.

Codornices

The RaptorQ erasure code (specified in IETF RFC 6330) enables reliable wireless communication systems, including high quality streaming and delivery of large data packages.

Under the auspices of the International Computer Science Institute, the Codornices project aims to spur further adoption and deployment of RaptorQ by developing a high performance software implementation of RaptorQ and developing application software that supports different use cases and standards that leverage RaptorQ.
