Traffic Counting in Static and Mobile Wireless Community Networking

State: Open

This thesis shall propose a protocol for Wireless Community Networks (WCN), in which a majority of nodes benefits from Internet access leveraging the links of nodes directly connected to the Internet. This protocol derived in this thesis shall allow an operator or a third party service provider to implement accounting and billing of services used. The solution shall operate on a per packet basis gathering information about nodes accessing the Internet and the intermediate nodes forwarding packets.
