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.
