Abstract

The most commonly used technique to evaluate novel solutions is to leverage on simulation studies which are largely based on a simplified model of the system behavior. Such an approach provides an approximate evaluation of the system’s performances, which can be potentially far away from the behavior on a real deployment. Another solution is to exploit real world prototypes and testbeds. Such testbeds are generally based on a limited number of nodes and, due to their experimental purposes, they only partially present the challenges of a real operational environment with hundred or thousand users. Furthermore, the limited number of nodes limits the possibility to study scalability issues.
