Abstract

This paper describes our ongoing effort in creating a distributed highly scalable and resilient platform that can model network interactions among a very large number of devices, in terms of their wireless and wired network characteristics as well as multiradio hardware capabilities. Such an emulation platform was realized as a service overlay network atop the PlanetLab distributed testbed. Our initial results suggest that the approach undertaken is highly feasible to model both device heterogeneity ranging from simple sensors to more powerful devices, as well as wireless network characteristics to customize link reliability, channel throughput as well as bandwidth availability.
