Persistence and Prevalence in the Mobility of Dartmouth Wireless Network Users
Clara E. Lee
Dartmouth TR2003-455


Wireless local-area networks (WLANs) are increasing in popularity. As more people use WLANs it is important to understand how these users behave. We analyzed data collected over three months of 2002 to measure the persistence and prevalence of users of the Dartmouth wireless network.

We found that most of the users of Dartmouth's network have short association times and a high rate of mobility. This observation fits with the predominantly student population of Dartmouth College, because students do not have a fixed workplace and are moving to and from classes all day.

Note: The data in this paper is highly suspect; see TR2003-480.
