dc.description.abstractThis thesis assesses the impact of Wi-Fi radio frequency interference (RFI) on mobile application quality of experience (QoE). Wi-Fi is a wireless radio network for transferring data between two end points and is based on the IEEE 802.11 standards and operates in the unlicensed 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz radio frequency bands. This thesis explores the QoE of mobile applications when considering the impact of RFI caused by Wi-Fi access points (WAPs) within a campus Wi-Fi network. The research was conducted to assess the effect of RFI on mobile application network performance metrics. This is evaluated by collecting broadcasted WAPs within a campus network, assessing the experienced RFI, and evaluating the mobile application QoE at specific locations to assess the impact of the experienced interference.en_US
