The NorNet Testbed for Multi-Homed Systems -- Introduction and Status

Multi-homing denotes the simultaneous connection of endpoints to
multiple Internet Service Providers (ISP). That is, such endpoints
should remain reachable even when some of the ISPs have problems.
Besides the redundancy aspect, multi-homing can also make load sharing
by multi-path transport possible, i.e. increasing the application
throughput by utilizing multiple paths simultaneously. The growing
need for and deployment of multi-homed applications makes large-scale
testing and evaluation in realistic Internet setups necessary. For
instance, different paths can have very different characteristics with
regard to bandwidth, packet loss rate, congestion, delay and jitter.
Therefore, the Simula Research Laboratory is building up the NorNet
testbed, which is an open platform for such experiments. NorNet
consists of two parts, the wireless part NorNet Edge as well as the
wired part NorNet Core, providing researchers the possibility to use
programmable, multi-homed nodes at different locations in Norway as
well as at some international sites. This talk gives an overview over
the NorNet testbed, with a special focus on the usage of the
PlanetLab/Linux Containers-based software that is used to run NorNet
