|Title: ||BSense: a system for enabling automated broadband census: short paper|
|Authors: ||Bernardi, Giacomo|
|Issue Date: ||2010|
|Journal Title: ||Proceedings of the 4th ACM Workshop on Networked Systems for Developing Regions|
|Abstract: ||Broadband Internet access is increasingly being looked at as the
new utility, in the same way as water supply and electricity networks.
Broadband networks are also being viewed as infrastructural
assets, such has roads or highways, because of the strategic
importance they carry in relation to economic growth. This new
view is driving the need for policy makers and governments to get
a better understanding of broadband coverage and quality, with a
particular emphasis on identifying underserved areas.
We propose BSense, a broadband census system based on
open-source software that attempts to utilize broadband data from
different sources and enable an automated broadband census.|
