Measuring Multi-Carrier Cellular Access International Roaming Performance

Discovery and identification technologies

Multi-Carrier Cellular Access (MCCA) providerssuch as GoogleFi irruptedrecentlyin the mobile Internet access market claiming to offer enhanced performance at reduced prices. MCCAproviders dynamically attach to different carriers based on real time measurements of performance.The goal of the project is to do an experimental comparativestudy ofthe performance of these emerging MCCAproviders and the incumbent cellular providerswith a specialfocus on the performance while roaming.The proposed methodology is to acquire MCCAservices and traditional mobile services in the US and experimentallycompare theirperformance bothat home (US) and while roaming (EU).
