Mobilis 2008 - TR1 : Urban Mobility: Municipal Wireless Networks as an Enabling Technology

  1. 1. Urban Mobility: Municipal Wireless Networks as an Enabling Technology Prof. Antonio Capone Politecnico di Milano A dvanced N etwork T echnologies Lab oratory
  2. 2. MuniWireless Networks <ul><li>A new emerging application area of wireless networks </li></ul><ul><li>Tremendous interest worldwide </li></ul><ul><li>Public utility services as distinguishing feature </li></ul><ul><li>Local governments and authorities as new actors for building up infrastructures and providing services </li></ul><ul><li>Big cities </li></ul><ul><li>Medium-small cities </li></ul><ul><li>Solution to digital divide </li></ul>
  3. 3. MuniWireless Services Deployment of a city-wide pervasive wireless network for offering a large set of services to public agencies, local police, fire dept, citizens, shops, local companies, and visitors. The wireless network as a key enabler for a large set of value-added public-utility services for the community . Virtual LAN for public access Virtual LAN for public utility services Virtual LAN for public security Metropolitan Area Network Tourist services Traffic control Public Access Parking lots management Citizen mobility management Support servuces for Police, Fire Depts, etc. E-health Video Surveillance … and many others One network many services Pollution mapping and control …
  4. 4. Public Information Services Traffic control and parking management Personal mobility Support to Public Health service Infoservices Social netwoking Vehicle sharing … e molti altri ancora Services for utility
  5. 5. Public Security Services Support to public police, fire brigates, etc. Videosurveillance … e molti altri ancora Monitoring and control of pollution (air, noise, etc.)
  6. 6. Research Projects on Public Utility Services Context/Location aware information services. ANTLab PoliMI VehicularLab @ UCLA
  7. 7. Which technology for MuniWireless? <ul><li>The development of services and applications on mobile wireless networks is complex due to: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The constraints posed by mobile service operators that need to completely control service provisioning according to their classical business model </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Frequency licences that prevent local government to make investments directly into the communication infrastructures </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Like the history of Internet teaches us, in order to develop a large number of popular services we need: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Open platforms </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Complete freedom of developing of applications for third parties (wrt manufacturers and service providers) </li></ul></ul>WiFi is today the only available solution able to cope with the request of open platform for public utility service development
  8. 8. WiFi MESH <ul><li>The problem: WiFI for large scale public networks has to cope with the problem of the broadband wired infrastructure </li></ul><ul><li>Solution: Replacing wired infrastructure with wireless links </li></ul>Ethernet
  9. 9. Wireless Mesh Networks <ul><li>Mesh routers (MRs) manage routing automatically based on ad hoc network technologies </li></ul><ul><li>Devices are flexible and self-configuring </li></ul><ul><li>All or a subset of MRs act as access points (Wi-Fi hot spot) </li></ul><ul><li>Some devices are the gateways to the Internet </li></ul><ul><li>Backhauling: WiFI, Hiperlan, WiMax, BPLC ... (maybe LTE MESH in the future) </li></ul>Internet mesh gateway mesh router mesh client Access Link Backhaul Gateway Link
  10. 10. Experimental Projects in the Academic Labs <ul><li>MIT Roofnet </li></ul><ul><ul><li>First experimental project </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Low cost HW </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Software open-source </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Other projects </li></ul><ul><ul><li>GeorgiaTech BWN-Mesh </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Rice University </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Rutgers Winlab ORBIT </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>SUNY Stonybrook Hyacinth </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>MobiMESH PoliMI </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Several academic projects have contributed to the commercial exploitation of the technology </li></ul>
  11. 11. MobiMESH Project <ul><li>Started by ANTLab, Politecnico di Milano in 2004 </li></ul><ul><li>Initial goal: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Create an experimental platform for testing innovative solutions for routing, mobility management, network configuration and management </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Soon coupled with the goal of: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Designing advanced mesh networking solutions and products for the market </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Today MobiMESH is a spin-off company of Politecnico di Milano </li></ul>MobiMESH first prototype
  12. 12. Thanks <ul><li>Contact: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Antonio Capone </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Email: antonio.capone@polimi.it </li></ul></ul><ul><li>For more information: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>www.antlab.elet.polimi.it </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>www.mobimesh.it </li></ul></ul>
