Building Experimental Networks Using the Supercharged Planetlab Platform


Jon Turner, Washington Univ. of St. Louis


Tues 11:00 - 4:30 pm (box lunch provided)


This tutorial provides an introduction to the Supercharged Planetlab Platform, now deployed as part of the GENI infrastructure. The SPP is a high performance overlay hosting platform, enabling researchers to deploy overlay networks capable of handling internet-scale traffic volumes. The tutorial will include background on the various hardware and software components and the roles they play, plus a detailed description of the tools available to users to reserve and configure resources to carry out an experiment or demonstration. It will also include demonstrations showing the SPPs in action and a hands-on session during which participants will have an opportunity to work with the SPPs themselves.
