Colleen Szymanik, Comcast

Colleen Szymanik is a Senior Wi-Fi Engineer at Comcast in Philadelphia. She received her MSE in Telecommunications and Network Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania. She designed and implemented the first WLAN for the University of Pennsylvania in 2000 and grew it into a large scale enterprise deployment. Her research interest is broadly in networking and Wi-Fi systems, focusing on the mobility aspects of wireless systems.

Darrell DeRosia, Comcast

Darrell DeRosia is a Senior Wi-Fi Engineer at NextGen in Philadelphia. Darrell has extensive experience deploying Wi-Fi in large venues, hotel and other multi dwelling units for the past 10 years. Over that time, Darrell has developed a profound understanding of client behavior that enables prevention of bottlenecks and accommodation of non-standard devices through inclusion, testing and validation as part of design process. His research interest relies heavily on creating a seamless user experience no matter what the obstacles are in the path.
Abstract: Building a carrier-grade Wi-Fi network requires support for multiple locations, multiple authentication zones, multiple back-haul connections, and multiple equipment vendors for each component. The user expectations are constantly evolving for the network and the way people are using the network is changing daily. Creating a seamless experience when the most common clients were never designed or developed to operate in these environments is challenging. The outdoor Wi-Fi initiative relies on a varied array of interconnected devices to provide the desired public access, with the expected levels of security and accountability, all while preserving the private user’s subscribed level of service. Operators pursuing outdoor Wi-Fi are interested in deploying architecture and interfaces that allow for network scalability (e.g., millions of APs and 10s of millions of client devices), multi-vendor interoperability, and a consistent user experience. This case study will focus on the data collected from the service provider footprint on outdoor and public area hotspot programs and lessons learned from operational experience.
