During the one minute it takes to read this abstract, two billion smartphones worldwide will perform billions of Wifi channel scans recording the signal strength of nearby Wifi Access Points (APs). Yet despite this ongoing planetary-scale wireless network measurement, few systematic efforts are made today to recover this potentially valuable data. In this paper we ask the question: “Are the smartphone channel scans useful in monitoring enterprise Wifi networks?” More specifically, can these… CONTINUE READING
