The Character of G-LAB – An Analysis of the German Lab for Future Internet Research and its Opportunities for Experimentally Driven Service Development,
In: Proceedings of the TERENA Networking Conference (TNC 2010), (Jean-Paul Le Guigner, others Ed.), TERENA : Amsterdam, June 2010.

Abstract: Research on a future Internet and network services has long been decelerated by a lack of experimental opportunities. Following the seminal concepts of PlanetLab, a variety of extended facilities on national or transnational scale have been planned, designed and partly deployed. As part of these international efforts, the German national project G-LAB has been launched as a highly controlled environment, dedicated to enhanced quality control services. It only recently announced operational availability. We report on an analysis and initial experiments on G-LAB. We draw dedicated comparison to PlanetLab from a design point of view, but more importantly describe practical experiences and performance measurements of the two distributed network facilities.

Themes: Internet Measurement and Analysis
