Through OneLab, you can easily test the software system that you have designed to function in any
one of the following networked communication environments: IoT networks with mobility
and sensing capabilities; ad-hoc wireless and wireless broadband access networks; a global, public, fixed-line Internet; and Cloud and SDN networks. Our platforms offer both wireless and fixed-line emulated environments and reproducibility of experimentation.
Experiment on hundreds of IoT sensor nodes in mobile and ad hoc environments with LR WPAN (802.15.4 wireless). These platforms offer both fixed nodes and mobile nodes with controlled mobility via robots or model trains.
Capabilities include WPAN (Bluetooth), WLAN (Wi-Fi), WWAN (GSM, GPRS, EDGE, 3G, LTE), and cognitive radio. These platforms offer both fixed nodes and mobile nodes with controlled mobility via robots or model trains. Some of the environments are rooms wrapped in Faraday cages, isolated from normal radio interference. Others are in typical office building environments.
Our platforms offer virtual machines on over 300 servers located at over 150 locations across Europe; users with premium access can also launch their experiments on an additional 700 servers at over 350 additional locations worldwide.
The cloud infrastructure offers control and visibility all the way down to the bare-metal which allows users to provision an entire cloud within minutes. Experiment using CloudLab, through building your own OpenStack instances on BareMetal ARM servers within minutes, or experiment with Openstack to deploy your virtual machines.
Experimentation in networked communication testbeds can be complex. There is much to understand: each platform's hardware capabilities, how the available software environments be configured and loaded onto a platform, the many features of available experiment control tools, etc. At OneLab, we have a skilled team that is happy to assist you throughout your experimentation cycle.
For all users - academic and industrial: We provide you with online tutorials, documentation, and invitations to hands-on workshops and community events. At these events, you will be able to test out the portal with our technical specialists, hear other experimenters provide feedback on their user experiences, and talk with the platform and tool developers about their research and work.
SMEs & other industrial users: We can accompany you through the entire process of designing, running, and processing your experiment. We offer help during any or all steps of experimentation. We work with you to understand the feasbility of your initial experiment and help to design, develop and implement tests on our platforms. We will also assist you with gathering and interpreting results -> contact us for a quote.
An account on a single portal through which you can access any of these sytems. If you repeat your testing in more than one environment, there is no new account to open, no new system to learn. The resources from all of our platforms are displayed in your web browser, and you may filter results according to specific sites, locations, and node type.
A set of highly capable experiment control tools. These are free open-source tools designed around a set of interfaces that are being adopted worldwide, meaning that these tools are evolving to meet the needs of an ever-growing community of experimenters, and can be tailored, if needed, for particular requirements.
