ResFi: A Secure Framework for Distributed Radio Resource Management of Residential WiFi Networks



 Sven Zehl, Anatolij Zubow, Michael Doering

In dense deployments of residential WiFi networks individual users suffer performance degradation due to both contention and interference. While Radio Resource Management (RRM) is known to mitigate this effects its application in residential WiFi networks being by nature unplanned and individually managed creates a big challenge. We propose ResFi - a framework supporting creation of RRM functionality in legacy deployments. The radio interfaces are used for efficient discovery of adjacent APs and as a side-channel to establish a secure communication among the individual Access Point Management Applications within a neighborhood over the wired Internet backbone. We have implemented a prototype of ResFi and studied its performance in our testbed. As a showcase we have implemented various RRM applications among others a distributed channel assignment algorithm using ResFi. ResFi is provided to the community as open source.
For more details please refer to our Paper: ResFi (PDF, 716,3 KB)
The source code of the ResFi prototype is published and maintained on Github:
  git clone github.com/resfi/resfi.git
