Real world testbeds, like the POWDER platform (Platform for Open Wireless Data-driven Experimental Research), enable a broad range of mobile and wireless research. Given the flexibility of this platform, a key concern for platform users is selecting a set of wireless resources that will satisfy the requirements of their experiments. In this paper we present the design and implementation of WiMatch a wireless resource matchmaking system. We illustrate the utility of our approach by evaluating it in the POWDER platform.
