How to get Help

  • Always ask your tutors (tutorial helper/presenter/TA) first. They are the fastest way to solve the problem.
  • If you are using a specific aggregate or tool, you should consider registering in their mailing list. It is a great way to get connected with other GENI users and it is an excellent source of wisdom.
  • Send mail to the GENI help list: or the geni-users forum
  • If you want to chat real-time with other GENI users and ask questions, join us in a GENI chatroom.


Tutorial materials


In this tutorial, we will show you how to set up one wireless access point and connect with 1 client. The access point will start an iPerf server instance, after which we will run an iPerf client instance on the second node. By using the correct IP addresses, we make sure that the iPerf traffic stream is routed over the wireless interfaces. In this tutorial, we will use a mobile node for setting up the access point. The client will be configured on a fixed wireless node.

In a second part of the tutorial, we will demonstrate how to use OMF/OML & Labwiki to run wireless experiment on the w-iLab.t testbed, including mobile nodes. Using the graph plotting capabilities of Labwiki, you will be able to see the throughput impact of moving the mobile node around the testbed.
