Riassunto analitico
A lot of capacity estimation tools have been designed and developed during the last years. This measurement is important in many Internet applications and protocols. However, there are a lot of tools that estimate the capacity of the bottleneck, but there are few tools that estimate the capacity of each link along a path. Furthermore, most of them are designed to work in a wired network. In this thesis we focus on the development of a tool able to discover the capacity of each link in an Internet path via an Android smartphone. In particular, we use an active technique based on an end-to-end measurement. Our tool is an application context-aware, because it takes into account the connection to Internet of the smartphone. The Android smartphone can connect to the Internet through different network technologies (i.e. Wifi, GSM, UMTS, LTE, ...). This network technologies affect the parameters of estimation of our tool
