Abstract

Traditionally, testbeds for networking and systems research have been stand-alone facilities: each is owned and operated by a single administrative entity, and is intended to be used independently of other testbeds. However, this model is at odds with researchers’ ever-increasing needs for experiments at larger scale and with a broader diversity of network technologies. The research community will be much better served by a model. In this model, each federated testbed maintains its own autonomy and unique strengths, but all federates work together to make their resources available under a common framework.
