The gradually growing need for testbed use so as networking algorithms to be validated in real environments, has given rise to optimal utilization of testbed resources. Despite the fact that, many laboratories around the globe have deployed testbeds, so as experimenters have the opportunity to test their algorithms, the majority of those testbeds suffer from bad management that prevents users from efficiently exploiting testbed's resources. Moreover, as the number of testbed users increases, experimenters needs for more sophisticated allocation of testbed resources are growing. Toward, this direction, the authors propose a managerial framework that exploits testbed utilization by introducing slicing over frequency spectrum.
