Duke Wireless Data

Project Summary

A team of students in conjunction with Duke’s Office of Information Technology will make use of Duke’s wireless network data to build detailed maps of wireless coverage, strength and utilization across campus.  The data will be overlayed on a campus map of buildings, and used to analyze trends in wireless demand (e.g. areas that need additional coverage or bandwidth), trends in wireless utilization (e.g. where and what times are the wireless network used the most), identify underutilization for resource reallocation, and trends in how groups of people move around campus.  Students will work directly with the network data and have access to the analytics tools used in OIT, and will have a great opportunity for exploration of the data in consultation with OIT network, security and data analytics professionals.
