NITlab - Network Implementation Testbed Laboratory
Network Implementation Testbed Laboratory
Welcome to the Network Implementation Testbed Laboratory of the Computer and Communication Engineering Department at University of Thessaly. NITLab is also affiliated with the Centre for Research & Technology Hellas (CERTH). The research of the lab focuses on the design, study and implementation of wireless schemes and their performance in the real environment. In this context, NITLab has developed a testbed named NITOS, which stands for Network Implementation Testbed using Open Source code.
NITOS testbed currently consists of 50 operational wireless nodes, which are based on commercial Wifi cards and Linux open source drivers. The testbed is designed to achieve reproducibility of experimentation, while also supporting evaluation of protocols and applications in real world settings. NITOS testbed is deployed at the exterior of the University of Thessaly (UTH) campus building.
The control and management of the tesbed is done using the cOntrol and Management Framework (OMF) open-source software. Users can perform their experiments by reserving slices (nodes, frequency spectrum) of the testbed through NITOS scheduler, that together with OMF management framework, support ease of use for experimentation and code development.
The NITOS platform is open to any researchers who would like to test their protocols in a real-life wireless network. They are given the opportunity to implement their protocols and study their behavior in a custom tailor-made environment. NITLab is constantly in the process of extending its Testbed capabilities.
