Executive Summary

The development of testbeds for networking research has been driven by the need for experimentation with complex systems, like the Internet, that simplistic simulators fail to reproduce. Recently, networked testbeds seem to head towards more advanced, flexible and automated experimental platforms mainly as the results of many projects and research initiatives in the field of Future Internet architectures. Although numerous publications can be found, most of them refer to prototypes and work in progress rather than to publicly available software that is ready to be widely used for the creation of such testbeds.
