The characteristics of these devices heavily influence the quality and performance of the Internet service that these users receive. Anecdotal evidence suggests that an extremely diverse set of behaviors exists in the deployed base, forcing application developers to design for the lowest common denominator. This paper experimentally analyzes the characteristics of a substantial number of different home gateways, such as binding timeouts, queuing delays, throughput, protocol support and others.</ABSTRACT><URL>http://sdstrowes.co.uk/publications/2010-hgw-study.pdf</URL></RECORD></RECORDS></XML>
