BANDWIDTH AGGREGATION OF MOBILE BROADBAND LINKS ON RASPBERRY PI BASED ACCESS POINT
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This thesis is concerned with the usability of Raspberry Pi as the access point in the mobilebroadband network environment. The first part of the thesis is dedicated to Raspberry Pi itself;hardware required to set up WLAN and WAN; and to the analysis of suitable solutions forbandwidth aggregation, particularly the load balancing of mobile broadband connections andtheir aggregation into one logical link. The second part deals with the implementation of thesesolutions and subsequently with their testing and verification. The evaluation of results gives aninteresting outcome. Load balancing has proven to be resilient and feasible solution forbandwidth aggregation in the mobile broadband network environment where the speed, packetloss and jitter are of main concern. The second scenario, where the connections are bundled intoone logical link, has turned out to give variable results. Its performance is susceptible to thechanges in the mobile broadband network as the packets across the links in the bundle alternatein the round-robin fashion.
