PlanetLab Europe has enhanced the network components available for researchers. For the full story, see this article on the OneLab site.
The 4th ACM International Conference on emerging Networking Experiments and Technologies (ACM CoNEXT 2008), was hosted by the University Carlos III of Madrid. The conference was a forum for presentations and discussions of novel networking technologies, which are shaping the future of Internetworking. PlanetLab Europe was represented at the ROADS 08 Technical Program.
Timur Friedman (UPMC), Scott Kirkpatrick (HUJI) and Max Ott (NICTA) attended the Geni Engineering Conference at HP Labs in Palo Alto, CA. At the meeting they met with members of PlanetLab Central, Akihiro Nakao (NICT) of PlanetLab Japan, and others.
Elliot Jaffe (HUJI) presented a specially developed PlanetLab tutorial at the FIREweek event in Paris. It provided an opportunity to walk through every stage for PLE testbed, from creating an account through running experiments. It demonstrated the usefulness of PlanetLab Europe for those interested in testing applications and protocols in a real-world setting, with actual network latency, bandwidth, and failure modes.
The tutorial is available on the FIREWorks site.
Thierry Parmentelat (INRIA) and Scott Kirkpatrick (HUJI) attended the PlanetLab Developer's Workshop in Princeton, New Jersey.
