The way we are doing science is changing: Data analysis and computation modeling became tightly coupled. Divergent technological trends for computer processors, storage and memory and communication systems showed to be a real challenge in performance of current computing systems. In this paper we analyze the trends that influence computer performance, point(More)
—Today, most of the smart phones are equipped with two network interfaces: Mobile Broadband (MBB) and Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN). Multi-path transport protocols provide increased throughput or reliability, by utilizing these interfaces simultaneously. However, multi-path transmission over networks with very different QoS characteristics is a(More)
Today, many smart phones and tablets have multiple interfaces (i.e. WLAN and 3G). These multiple interfaces can be utilized simultaneously by a multi-path transport protocol to provide bandwidth aggregation or reliability. However, in order to design efficient multi-path scheduling and congestion control strategies, it is crucial to understand the behaviour(More)
Multipath TCP was standardised in 2013 at IETF. It promises better use of network resources of multi-homed devices for capacity aggregation or seamless fail-over capabilities. The uptake has however been rather slow. Some operating systems support MPTCP out of the box, but little is known about their deployment on the server side. We built a scanning(More)
Practical shared bottleneck detection has proved to be a difficult problem. We present a novel passive approach using efficient estimates of time and frequency domain summary statistics. The approach is not CPU nor network intensive, and has numerous potential applications in the Internet. Simulations and tests over the Internet and 3G cellular network show(More)
With the 20th anniversary of IPv6 nearing quickly, a growing number of Internet service providers (ISPs) now offer their customers both IPv6 and IPv4 connectivity. This makes multi-homing with IPv4 and IPv6 increasingly common even with just a single ISP connection. Furthermore, the growing popularity of multi-path transport, especially Multi-Path TCP(More)
Mobile broadband is one of the most common ways of connecting to the Internet. A mobile broadband network is stateful, and a device is allocated different radio resources depending on the state. State promotions take up to three seconds, and the promotions, or just being in the "wrong" state, can have a severe effect on user experience. Existing work has(More)
With the widespread availability of multi-homed devices, multipath transport protocols such as MPTCP are becoming increasingly relevant to support better use of multiple connectivity through capacity aggregation and seamless failover. However, capacity aggregation over heterogeneous paths, such as offered by cellular and Wi-Fi networks, is problematic. It(More)
