Student Projects: 2001

 Index 2001  Student Projects  NetOS 

If you are interested in attempting any of these projects then in the first instance contact Ian Pratt or Tim Harris, unless advised otherwise in the description.

We will be holding a meeting to describe these proposals in more detail at 2pm, Monday June 18th in TP4.

Mobile IP phone
Proxy for Mobile TCP/IP: This project would involve development of a "transparent proxy" that would "invisibly" sit in the middle of TCP connection (typically on the border between a wired and wireless network) forwarding data in both directions. The proxy would buffer data that it forwards to enable any retransmissions to be handled by the proxy without notifying the remote end system. This kind of proxy is likely to be very important to get good performance (and save money) when using wireless networks, such as the Lab's GPRS/3G setup.

This project requires a good understanding of TCP, but can be developed entirely in user-space (no kernel hacking required).
