Network Analysis of Nintendo DS Traffic

Abstract

This paper studies the characteristics and behaviors of wireless networks utilized by the Nintendo DS during multiplayer gaming. The nature of DS wireless multiplayer is explored. By setting up a PC to sniff wireless traffic, we were able to perform carefully designed experiments that would allow for a comparative analysis of two, three, and four players. The resulting data was used to discuss scalability and network architecture.
