This demo paper presents FLEX-MONROE, a platform that facilitates better understanding of current LTE Mobile Broadband (MBB) networks and enables performance improvements by allowing experimentation with controllable LTE parameters. The platform enables investigating impact of low-level network parameter tweaks in LTE infrastructure on the application performance. We argue that FLEX-MONROE is crucial to provide guidelines on improving application performance both in the current and future MBB networks.
