Abstract

In this article we present a selection from a vast range of experiments run with MONROE, our open experiment as a service (EaaS) platform for measurements and experimentation in Mobile Broadband Networks. We show that the plat- form can be used to benchmark network performance in a repeatable and con- trolled manner thanks to the collection of a rich set of geotagged metadata and the execution of discretionary user experiments. Indeed, with the sheer amount of data collected from 12 commercial mobile operators across Europe, MON- ROE offers an unprecedented opportunity to monitor, analyze and ultimately improve the status of current and future mobile broadband networks. Besides, we show how flexibly the platform allows combining metadata and experimental data series during the experiments or by means of post-processing, and show results produced by our own experiments as well as comment on results obtained by external research groups and developers that have been granted access to our platform.
