Network Test Capability of Modern Web Browsers

Abstract [en]

Web browsers are being used for network diagnostics. Users commonly verify their Internet speed by using a website, Bredbandskollen.se or speedtest.net for example. These test often need third party software, Flash or Java applets. This thesis aims at prototyping an application that pushes the boundaries of what the modern web browser is capable of producing regarding network measurements, without any third party software. The contributions of this thesis are a set of suggested tests that the modern browser should be capable of performing without third party software. These tests can potentially replace some of network technicians dedicated test equipment with web browser capable deceives such as mobile phones or laptops. There exist both TCP and UDP tests that can be combined for verifying some Quality of Service (QoS) metrics. The TCP tests can saturate a gigabit connection and is partially compliant with RFC 6349, which means the traditional Internet speed test sites can obtain more metrics from a gigabit throughput test then they do today.
