Cross-Testbed Experimentation Using the Planetlab-NITOS Federation
Federation of network testbeds has been identified as a key goal in the experimental testbeds community, leading to a recent activity burst in this research field. In this paper, the authors describe a federated experiment between the NITOS wireless testbed and the Planetlab Europe (PLE) testbed. The federation scheme supporting this experiment was initially established during the Onelab2 EU project and was enhanced during the OpenLab EU project. The experiment constitutes in testing the implementation of an end-to-end delay aware Wi-Fi association scheme, in an environment where a wireless station situated at NITOS is sending traffic towards a remote PLE server.
