Abstract
Traffic sensing and characterization is an important building block of cognitive networking systems, however, it is very challenging to perform traffic characterization in multi-channel multi-radio wireless networks. Due to the presence of network traffic in multiple channels, the existing count-based packet sampling methods demand continuous capture on each channel to be effective; this requires a dedicated wireless interface per channel, and hence the existing sampling methods require a very expensive infrastructure and have poor ...
