"The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn."

― Alvin Toffler

About Me:

  • I work with Nick Feamster at GTNoise lab, Georgia Tech, since May 2013. I am also guided by Jennifer Rexford and Scott Shenker for my SDX project.
  • I graduated from NC State University with masters in Computer Science in May'13
  • I graduated from IIT Roorkee with bachelors in ECE
  • I worked at IISc, Bangalore under Dr. Anurag Kumar before joining  NC State
  • At NC State I was awarded prestigious CoE Fellowship
  • Worked with Dr Nadita Dukkipati at Google Inc, Mtn View during Summer 2011
  • Areas of my interests are Mobile Systems, SDN, Cloud Computing and Distributed Systems

Research Experience:
  • mPaaS: The main objective of this project is to explore various research challenges to enable delivery of mobile platforms as a service (mPaaS). I am currently focussing on mobile sensor virtualization which can enable such a service. 
    • Checkout my progress over GitHub, or NSDI Demo (April 3rd, 2013)
  • MPStreaming: The main motive of project is to develop a video streaming solution for devices with multiple network interfaces. We currently enable usage of multiple interfaces for android phones and developed a download module for MR VoD servers. We are currently developing quality adaptation algorithms for SVC video streams leveraging multiple interfaces. For further details write to me at: agupta13@ncsu.edu
  • WiFox: The main goal of the project is to provide better performance for WiFi networks for large audience environments. We quantified the impact of problems like traffic asymmetry, diverse data rates etc for such environments and proposed our Adaptive AP prioritization solution. Please contact me for final draft of our WiFox paper.

    • Arpit Gupta, Jeongki Min, Injong Rhee, "WiFox: Scaling WiFi Performance for Large Audience Environments", Accepted as Full paper at CoNext 2012
  • CellSig: This project targets to develop a logical localization scheme using information from connected and neighbouring cellular towers. This assists in predicting availability of WiFi APs to connect to and avoid energy wastage associated with WiFi scanning. Please contact Kyunghan Lee for final draft of our submission.
    • Kyunghang Lee, Nithyanthan Posanamani, Arpit Gupta, "CellSig: A Practical Location Matching System Leveraging Cellular Signals for Smart Phones", under preparation
  • Other Projects:
    • Short RTOs: Explored the problem of timeouts in TCP especially for short flows. Ran experiments over Google's Front End servers to infer problems associated with time outs for short flows.
    • ADWISER: It is a centralized LAN scheduler developed at IISc, Bangalore and I worked on it to provide fair bandwidth share for competing clients with disparate link qualities
    • HumLog: Localization leveraging on regularity in human mobility. Refer my technical report for details.
