short description

User session traces collected from Wi-Fi hotspots for six years.


This traceset contains user sessions which were collected from a large number of free Wi-Fi hotspots in Montreal, Quebec, Canada for six years.

When a user connects to a gateway installed on a wireless router, the gateway opens a session on the auth server (that knows what hotspot the user is connecting from), the auth server assigns a session number (connection id) and gives it to the gateway. The gateway then counts the in and out traffic transferred during that session, and periodically sends it to the auth server for each connected user. Therefore, no merge of data from different hotspots is necessary, the only place data is logged is on the auth server.
