Abstract

This project investigated the viability of data flows over the Worcester, MA. Spring PCS EvDO network by building an experimental test bed between the WPI campus and the Sprint network. A custom-built bandwidth estimation tool yielded consistent estimates of available capacity of approximately 500 kbps over the EvDO network. Measured TCP throughout was slightly higher on weekdays than weekends, ninety percent of measured round trip times were below 210 ms, and performance analysis produced no significant time of day correlation.
