To enable the fundamental research and innovation demanded to advance mobile networking beyond the state-of-the-art, a new facility called PhantomNet is being developed and coupled with the Emulab testbed at the University of Utah. PhantomNet will be a fully programmable end-to-end testbed with unique features to facilitate research efforts at the intersection of mobile networking, cloud computing and software defined networking.
We are open for business! Go here: PhantomNet Portal.
We are pleased to host the first PhantomNet User's Workshop.
Join us for a PhantomNet based totorial on "4G to 5G and beyond: From theory to practice" at IEEE CCNC 2016.
Emulab is a network testbed, giving researchers a wide range of environments in which to develop, debug, and evaluate their systems. The Emulab facility at the University of Utah has over 600 PCs, a hundred wireless devices, and dozens of switches. It is used by thousands of researchers at hundreds of institutions worldwide. The software that we built to run Emulab is open source, and is used as part of dozens of network testbeds across the globe.
ProtoGENI is an NSF-funded and GPO-funded prototype implementation and deployment of GENI, led by the Flux research group at the University of Utah, and largely based on our Emulab software.

Apt (the Adaptable Profile-Driven Testbed) is a new type of facility: a meta-testbed that is adaptable through "profiles” to support a wide range of computing-based research domains. Apt focuses on getting the infrastructure out of the way, giving researchers the ability to create testbed environments ("profiles") that are tailored to their own domains, and to share those environments with their colleagues. Apt targets both researchers in computer science and researchers from other compute-intensive fields.
Many of the ideas that drive modern cloud computing, such as server virtualization, network slicing, and robust distributed storage, arose from the research community. Despite this success, today’s clouds have become environments that are unsuitable for moving this research agenda forward—they have particular, unmalleable implementations of these ideas “baked in.” CloudLab will not be a cloud; it will be large-scale, distributed scientific infrastructure on top of which many different clouds can be built.
