PLE Video Tutorial: Registering a New Site with PlanetLab Europe

PlanetLab Europe welcomes companies, universities, and research laboratories across Europe to join the testbed. We are supported by the European Commision through its 7th Framework Programs, FIRE initiative (Future Internet Research and Experimentation). We encourage other FP7 projects in this area to participate, and offer special terms for those which do. For research project to take advantage of PlanetLab Europe is it only necessary for one or more of its partners to be memers of the PlanetLab Europe consortium.

  • Sort "Last Contact" column on node list pages.
