2nd Workshop on Mobile Network Measurement (MNM’18)

The second edition of the MNM workshop is a full-day, pre-TMA conference event, and takes place on Monday the 25th of June. Proceedings of the 2nd MNM workshop will be included within the TMA conference proceedings, published in the IFIP Open Digital Library, with open access, and submitted to IEEE Xplore.


Network measurement provides essential input for operations and diagnostics as well as a basis for the network design and development of protocols in today’s complex networks. Over the last few decades, mobile networks have become a vital piece of the modern communications infrastructure, underpinning many aspects of modern society. However, measurement is challenging for mobile networks, because the mobile ecosystem is complex with many different components required to work together in a dynamic environment where channel conditions constantly change and users move. The workshop will focus on active and passive measurement methods and results for mobile networks.

The objective of the MNM workshop is to bring together researchers and industry, especially mobile operators and businesses whose operations depend on mobile networks, for discussion of measured network effects as well as optimization and advancement of measurement tools and methods for mobile environments. We solicit contributions on the state-of-the-art, results of ongoing research, open issues, trends and new ideas.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Measurement results of end-to-end and application-level performance (Quality of Experience) in mobile broadband networks

  • Tools and methods for end-to-end as well as application-level performance that are optimized for measurements in mobile networks

  • Measurement tools for middlebox and proxy detection as well as reports of measured middelbox behavior

  • Classification and modeling of in-network function in mobile networks

  • Machine learning and data analytics for monitoring and analysis of mobile network traffic

  • Visualization of dynamics in mobile networks for diagnostics

  • Approaches and protocols to support measurements and monitoring in mobile networks
