Weekly report - 3/3/13




This week I began my Masters under the supervision of Dr. Dean Armstrong at Virscient Limited and Dr. Richard Nelson. The purpose of my thesis is to develop a framework of simulation for IEEE 802.11ad using ns-3. 802.11ad is a new wireless standard for multi-Gbps throughput in the 60GHz spectrum. I will be extending ns-3 to support the new MAC and model physical and logical characteristics as well as designing a set of use cases for testing and showcasing the standard.

I have so far been reviewing material on ns-3 as well as learning a bit of Python and C++.
