MONACO is a flexible research infrastructure designed for network experimentation in:
Future Internet Architectures:
Part of to the LISP pilot network
Access to real-time BGP feeds of the Internet DFZ zone. Among other applications this provides relevant data to analyze the current Internet topology.
Includes 3G and WiFI mobile nodes
All nodes are synchronized (<1ms) for="" network="" measurements="" p="">
Traffic Monitoring & Analysis
In order to interconnect each module, MONACO includes a set of high-end routers and switches providing a backbone capacity of 1Gbps. Also, the core-network is connected to the Internet through a direct link to Rediris of 1Gbps. Finally, in order to provide accurate measurements, all the modules are attached to a Stratum-1 GPS antenna providing a synchronization signal (<1us). span="">
MONACO has also access to a very large cluster (70 machines, PXeon 16GB RAM) to Simulate, and Emulate. Further, and thanks to the GpENI infrastructure MONACO includes a several machines able to virtualized network topologies and protocols.
MONACO is the outcome of 10 more than years of participation into National, European and Industrial projects. Mainly:
Future Internet & Mobility: IST-LONG and IST-EULER
Traffic Monitoring & Analysis: INTEL Research
Network Measurements: IST-EuQoS
The MONACO testbed is located at UPC Campus Nord, Barcelona, Spain. Contact information here
