ROOM:Mile High Pre-Function

We are investigating if wireless devices can replace wireline networks to serve as an interconnect network for a massively parallel computer. The radio devices are getting faster, cheaper, smaller and consume less energy compared to last decade. Some of them occupy a fraction of a square centimetre on silicon. They are already used in other applications including wireless NoC and chip to chip wireless communications. We want to find a more precise picture of the benefits and restrictions of a 3D wireless massively parallel machine. A concept machine called the Ball Computer is presented which is basically a multi-channel 3D wireless grid. The machine is implemented only in a simulation environment. A method to share the available radio bandwidth is introduced. To test the performance of the platform a couple of task models are built which are artificial traffic load generators. A set of simulation and visualisation tools is implemented.
