     Rice Networks Group
     
    Research Areas
     Wireless networks, urban-scale testbeds, diverse spectrum access, multi-antenna systems, hardware platforms, high-performance protocol design, security, and performance evaluation.. He leads the Rice Networks Group. The group’s current projects include deployment, operation, and management of a large-scale urban wireless network in a Houston under-resourced community. This network, Technology For All (TFA) Wireless, is serving over 4,000 users in several square kilometers and employs custom-built programmable and observable access points. The network is the first to provide residential access in frequencies spanning from unused UHF TV bands to legacy WiFi bands (500 MHz to 5 GHz). His group developed the first multi-user beam-forming WLAN system that demonstrates a key performance feature provided by IEEE 802.11ac. His group also co-developed a clean-slate-design hardware platform for high-performance wireless networks, TAPs and WARP.

Designed and evaluated opportunistic rate adaptation that scales the amount of data transmitted to the channel rate, holding time shares constant for time-share fairness. (ACM MobiCom 2002). This project yielded the first WLAN implementation of per-packet channel-based rate adaptation.


    2002 - 2005    Internet Denial of Service. Demonstrated underlying vulnerabilities of TCP to low-rate attacks (ACM SIGCOMM 2003) and peer-to-peer networks to pollution attacks (ACM SIGMETRICS 2005)

    New Wi-Fi Network Rides Unused TV Airwaves (PDF-text) 
Innovation News Daily, Francie Diep, Staff Writer
Nestled between airwaves owned by U.S. TV stations are slices of unused, un-owned broadcasting frequencies—and a new project by Microsoft hopes to use that space to deliver more-efficient, faster wireless Internet. But the project comes at a time of uncertainty about who, if anyone, will ultimately own these free frequencies. The future of this and similar innovations depends on pending legislation that Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski discussed at this year's Consumer Electronics Show.
