Interconnection of Geographically Distributed Wireless Mesh Testbeds: Resource Sharing on a Large Scale

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Creating large scale testbeds for evaluating wireless mesh technologies and protocols, and for testing their ability to support real world applications in realistic environments, is a crucial step towards the ultimate success of the WMN paradigm. In this paper, the authors suggest the hierarchical federation of a planetary scale infrastructure, such as PlanetLab, with a number of local OMF-based wireless testbeds as a viable approach towards this goal. Along such direction, they present an architectural model for integrating at the technical level these two kinds of infrastructures and their initial implementation of such a model.
