(Invited Paper)
Abstract-- The rapid growth in the popularity of cellular
networks has led to aggressive deployment and a rapid expansion
of mobile services. Services based on the integration of cellular
networks into the Internet have only recently become available,
but are expected to become very popular. One current limitation
to the deployment of many of these services is poor or unknown
network performance, particularly in the cellular portion of the
network. Our goal in this paper is to motivate and present the
Mobile Internet Services Test (MIST) platform, a new distributed
architecture to measure and characterize cellular network per-
formance as experienced by mobile devices. We have used
MIST to conduct preliminary measurements; evaluate MIST's
effectiveness; and motivate further measurement research.
