Abstract

Testbeds are a stage between the simulation and the production stages. To this end they must be as close as possible to production environments (i.e. real hardware, on the field deployments) while also keeping the traits of experimentation facilities (i.e. fault tolerance, ease of deployment, testing and data collection). This paper presents Wibed, a platform for facilitating the deployment and management of testbeds for experimentation on mesh networks based on commodity IEEE802.11 routers. The Wibed platform has been used to deploy the UPC-A6 testbed with 50 nodes over six campus buildings. The UPC-A6 testbed is being federated with the Community-lab testbed.
