TITLE:  WAN-in-Lab high speed long distance network testbed

ABSTRACT:

WAN-in-Lab is a hardware testbed for the design, development, testing
and evaluation of TCP congestion control algorithms.  It uses real
carrier-class networking hardware to avoid the artifacts introduced by
network emulation, while being localized to allow detailed measurement
of network performance.WAN-in-Lab is open for use by anyone in the
networking community whose needs it fits, with remote reconfiguability
being a high priority.

The current research focus of WAN-in-Lab is benchmarking of
next-generation TCP algorithms.  To this end, we will be adapting
existing simulation-based benchmark suites to the capabilities of
WAN-in-Lab, and developing new tests which consider details not amenable
to simulation, such as the CPU load imposed by the algorithms.
