In the last 3 years a medium size NGN testbed was deployed at the Instituto de Telecomunicações of Aveiro in order to support the validation of the project IST-Daidalos. This paper intends to describe not only the work done in order to setup and maintain this testbed but also to elucidate the community of some of the caveats of creating and managing such a testbed in a environment where most of the prototypes are under specification and requirements change quickly. In this paper we also present some of the methodology used in order to extract results from this testbed and an insight to what can be done in the future.
