PlanetLab: From Testbed to Service Deployment Platform
Marc Fiuczynski, Princeton Computer Science
4:30 PM
Small Auditorium CS 105

PlanetLab was originally designed to be a realistic testbed for
networking and distributed systems research. It has served that role
quite well. More recently, however, it has also become a practical
platform for rapidly deploying (and then effectively managing) network
services that have value to a wide-range of user communities (and a
diverse set of network environments).

This talk describes three such deployments: (1) providing web
connectivity to remote villages and schools; (2) capturing gold-standard
measurements of broadband connectivity in the US; and (3) supporting
high-speed content distribution in a Telco access network.
