WEIRD—WiMAX Extension to Isolated Research Data networks

The WEIRD (WiMAX Extension to Isolated Research Data Networks) project is unique in the European R&D scene: by the end of May 2008, WEIRD delivered not one but four WiMAX testbeds, all interconnected via GEANT2, the pan-European research and education network. By combining theoretical methods with empirical research and prototype development, the project identifies and addresses the needs arising from a variety of scenarios, ranging from environmental monitoring to telemedicine. WiMAX has been much touted (and criticized) during the last years. The WEIRD testbeds are instrumental in separating hype from reality.

In WEIRD (web site, fact sheet), I mainly worked on system analysis and infrastructure testbed design and implementation, focusing on mobility, traffic measurements and analysis, and applications. During the project, I also supervised three M.Sc. theses and a practicum at VTT.
