Talk: "Measuring wifi performance across all Google Fiber customers" (Avery Pennarun)


In the last year, Google Fiber has added lots of interesting (and open source) self-analysis features to our fleet of wifi access points in customers' homes in Kansas City, Provo, and Austin. In the background we collect data like transfer speeds, signal strength, device capabilities, background interference, and so on. We also have a "device taxonomy" that allows us to break down the data by device types such as tablets, iPhones, Windows PCs, Chromecasts, etc. Avery will show lots of surprising and unsurprising charts and show how they lead to some important suggestions for the future of wifi on Linux.
