Partner description

Universidade Federal de Juiz de Fora (UFJF) was founded in 1960. The UFJF is a very important university in the region, with more than 18,000 students and about 600 professors.

As a Collaborating Institution in mPlane, Universidade Federal de Juiz de Fora will contribute with its expertise in collecting measurement data from the campus network(s) and then define methodologies for data analysis and processing, with particular attention to i) passive measurements and ii) cloud service characterization.

Role in mPlane

Universidade Federal de Juiz de Fora will be mainly involved in WP1, WP2 and WP5 activities. UFJF will collaborate on:

  • Data collection from existing probes and from mPlane probes;
  • Deploying of the prototype in a network scenario involving lab facilities (made available by several partners), large testbeds (e.g.. Planetlab) and real field networks;
  • Characterization of a set of cloud services, such as Dropbox;
  • Assessment of the deployed prototype by taking into account the use cases defined in WP1, mainly on cloud services over Internet

UFJF will work together with all other collaboration institutions on gathering data from each campus and on characterizing user profile from our universities. Research areas include:

  • Passive Traffic Probes.
  • Traffic Characterization.
