Title: MONITORING OF NETWORK PERFORMANCE IN A WIRELESS NETWORK
Abstract:
The present invention provides for a method and system for measuring data quality of service in a wireless network using multiple peripatetic (i.e. mobile) and/or stationary, unattended, position, and performance instruments that are remotely controlled by a back end processor. The system includes an element that is located within the wireless network infrastructure, for example, at the WAP gateway to monitor the wireless data protocol and to perform benchmarking measurements.
