Open Access Honors Program Thesis
Various bandwidth monitoring software solutions are in existence today. However, these products report bandwidth usage based on IP address. This is not beneficial for the ResNet network because registration for access on ResNet is based on MAC address. They also do not provide a way to associate a device with a specific user or aggregate usage for multiple devices registered to a user.
I chose this project because of the benefit it would provide for ResNet and ITS-Network Services. As an employee of ITS-Network Services and ResNet for the past two and four years, respectively, I care about students being satisfied with the Internet service we provide. The amount of bandwidth consumed by the top bandwidth users on ResNet is significant. This project has the potential to help improve network performance and customer satisfaction by enforcing fair bandwidth usage. I was also drawn to the web application aspect of this project. I will be developing web applications in my career after graduation, and this project seemed like a great way to develop those skills.
