Radio Shop Chat – PAWR: Platforms and Testbeds for Wireless Experimentation and Data Collection
March 7 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Tommaso Melodia, William L. Smith Professor at Northeastern University
Abstract: This talk will present an overview of existing testbeds and platforms available to the wireless research community for prototyping, experimentation, and data collection with a variety of wireless technologies and scenarios, and with a focus on virtualized and softwarized wireless systems. The talk will discuss the NSF Platforms for Advanced Wireless Research Program and its resources for over-the-air experimentation and at-scale emulation, as well as a number of tools available to the research community for experiment design and analysis.
