SIP Services on a Wireless Mesh Network

Real-Time Communications Lab Project

Real-Time Communications
Fall 2005

Suggested and supported by the Center for Neighborhood Technology (CNT), this project tests and characterizes the ability of a wireless mesh network using the CUWIN routing protocol to support SIP-based VoIP applications.        

The students built a test bed in the lab and created an initial set of tests. They demonstrated that both a hosted SIP-based service and lab-centered SIP UA/Proxy were able to complete calls on the test bed.      

In the second semester, the students will create a variety of stresses and impairments, repeat the same tests under these new conditions, and characterize the system's behavior under stress. They also plan to test the operation of special features and the behavior of a variety of freely-downloadable UA/Proxy combinations.

SmartLab Student Projects

Our team was given the task of develop an electronic prototype covering the elements learned in the Embedded Systems course. These elements are electricity, data collection, data transmission, and data presentation. To do this, we created an electronic version of the board game Go.

EcoTower takes Hydroponic farming to the next level by using technology to self-regulate plant growth. Hydroponics is the science of giving a plant the necessities for growth and longevity.

Technology has brought the benefits of incorporated multi-sensor equipment to the masses. Although, the application of sensors and their associated systems has increased and transformed the world forever, the fundamentals of the main sensor types and their functionality has not.

This project is the outcome of multiple semesters work with ComEd to develop a reliable sensor platform.

As an Information Technology student and a person very much interested in Art, it was easy for me to be hooked by Digital Art. Project Aura was an idea that stemmed from my passion for Technology and Art.
