Performance Evaluation of a hybrid Testbed for Wireless Mesh Networks

Mesut Güneş, Alexander Zimmermann, Sadeq Ali Makram, Ulrich Meis, Michael Faber— 2007

WMN are supposed to provide flexible and high-performance wireless network access for large areas. However, these claims are mostly substantiated by simulation studies only as real testbeds are inflexible and associated with high maintenance costs. In this work we present a hybrid, i.e., partly real and partly virtualized, WMN testbed. This provides a high degree of realism while still allowing the flexibility known from simulations. In addition to the architectural discussion we present measurement results from our testbed highlighting the optimisation potential of small protocol parameter changes.
