IEEE/IFIP Workshop on Mobile Network Measurement (MNM’17)

in conjunction with TMA Conference 2017
June 20, 2017 in Dublin, Ireland.

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 this 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 particular interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Measurements of end-to-end performance metrics in mobile broadband networks, especially for 3G/4G
  • Measurements of application-level performance & Quality of Experience (QoE)
  • Tools and methods for end-to-end performance measurements
  • Tools and methods for assessing application-level performance and QoE
  • Tools and methods for middlebox and proxy detection
  • Classification and modeling of in-network function in mobile networks
  • Machine learning and data analytics for network monitoring, traffic analysis and network management
  • Visualization of dynamics in mobile networks for diagnostics
