This paper presents the <i>expected transmission count</i> metric (ETX), which finds high-throughput paths on multi-hop wireless networks. ETX minimizes the expected total number of packet transmissions (including retransmissions) required to successfully deliver a packet to the ultimate destination. The ETX metric incorporates the effects of link loss(More)
This paper analyzes the causes of packet loss in a 38-node urban multi-hop 802.11b network. The patterns and causes of loss are important in the design of routing and error-correction protocols, as well as in network planning.The paper makes the following observations. The distribution of inter-node loss rates is relatively uniform over the whole range of(More)
This paper evaluates the ability of a wireless mesh architecture to provide high performance Internet access while demanding little deployment planning or operational management. The architecture considered in this paper has unplanned node placement (rather than planned topology), omni-directional antennas (rather than directional links), and multi-hop(More)
Existing wireless ad hoc routing protocols typically find routes with the minimum hop-count. This paper presents experimental evidence from two wireless test-beds which shows that there are usually multiple minimum hop-count paths, many of which have poor throughput. As a result, minimum-hop-count routing often chooses routes that have significantly less(More)
Meraki is a cloud-based network management system which provides centralized configuration, monitoring, and network troubleshooting tools across hundreds of thousands of sites worldwide. As part of its architecture, the Meraki system has built a database of time-series measurements of wireless link, client, and application behavior for monitoring and(More)
This paper addresses a set of serious performance problems observed on the CityMesh 50-node 802.11b urban rooftop network that existing routing protocols do not consider. The original CityMesh routing protocol, based on DSR and ETX, delivered median TCP throughput of 20 kilobytes per second, despite the use of radios that could drive most individual links(More)
This paper describes the design and performance of Roofnet, an 802.11b mesh network for Internet access. Roofnet consists of more than 40 nodes spread over an eight square kilometer urban area. Its principle design goal is to allow unmanaged deployment and operation, to better support the growth of community networks with open access policies. This goal has(More)
This extended abstract describes our experiences from constructing the MIT Roofnet, an experimental rooftop wireless network. The ultimate goal of Roofnet is to build an ad-hoc network infrastructure capable of providing pervasive highspeed network access. Currently, the network currently consists of more than 35 nodes spread over two square kilometers of(More)
Rotaviruses (RVs) are nonenveloped, 11-segmented, double-stranded RNA viruses that are major pathogens associated with acute gastroenteritis. Group A, B, and C RVs have been isolated from humans; however, intergroup gene reassortment does not occur for reasons that remain unclear. This restriction might reflect the failure of the viral RNA-dependent RNA(More)
