Abstract

The gradually growing need for testbed use so as networking algorithms to be validated in real environment, has given rise to optimal utilization of testbed resources. Towards this direction, we present a new management tool that is used for assessing channel quality information in wireless testbed deployments. NITOS Connectivity Tool retrieves data concerning link quality measurements, for providing testbed users with useful information about choosing nodes that occasionally satisfy the requirements (link quality, connectivity) needed, for their experiments. NITOS connectivity tool is a full-fledged managerial tool that exploits testbed utilization by letting testbed users have a complete view about testbed’s nodes. This tool allows a more sophisticated way to optimally choose network resources of a testbed.
