Executive Summary

Experimental facilities (or testbeds) are instrumental in the development and evaluation of new Internet technologies. Evaluations based on simulation and emulation does provide valuable, yet inexpensive insight into the performance of new networking technologies at large scales. How-ever, simulators and emulators inherently make simplifying model assumptions. Thus, convincing the networking industry and community to widely adopt and deploy new algorithms or mechanisms also requires comprehensive analysis in real-world settings. Supporting researchers in developing and conducting these experiments is challenging-particularly on mobile testbeds, where nodes may be disconnected from the control network and node movements may not be under the control of experimenters.
