Report Available! Telemetering the telltale signs of power issues of wireless internet relays


The TellTale project was conceived with aim of addressing the problem of measurement and projection of the power uptime duration of wireless internet relays. In rural areas and in areas where such projections are not available, operators often fail to address downtimes in a timely manner, thereby increasing the number and duration of downtimes and/or … Continue reading Report Available!

Report Available! Implementation and Utilites of RDAP for Wider Usability among Internet Stakeholders


This project aimed to increase the adoption of the Registration Data Access Protocol (RDAP), which is the replacement/upgradation of WHOIS. It is used to retrieve registration data using Internet resources such as domain names, Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, and autonomous system numbers (ASN). RDAP solves several problems of WHOIS. It has many new features which … Continue reading Report Available! Implementation and Utilites of RDAP for Wider Usability among Internet Stakeholders

Report Available! Network Coding over Satellite Links: Scheduling Redundancy for Better Goodput


Many Pacific islands still rely on satellite for Internet access, using narrowband links with capacities far below those of the networks at either end, carrying mostly TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) traffic. On these links, a large number of TCP senders simultaneously try to adjust their congestion windows to the perceived link capacity: Acknowledgment (ACK) packets … Continue reading Report Available!
