Demonstration Abstract: WARP - A Flexible Platform for Clean-Slate Wireless Medium Access Protocol Design
Source: Rice University
Wireless open-Access Research Platform (WARP) is a programmable wireless research tool that is both scalable and extensible. The custom design of the WARP physical (PHY) layer is tailored to the needs of high-performance wireless communications. While the GNU Radio and the USRP are limited to narrow band applications, WARP is designed to support wide band communication designs. The flexible interrupt-driven interface between the PHY and the Medium Access Control (MAC) layers allows for the development and performance evaluation of a large class of cross-layer designed protocols.
