Emulation of Open Content Aware Networks on the iLab.t Virtual Wall

Abstract

The FP7 OCEAN project investigates scalable content and network mechanisms to deliver multimedia services with high quality over a Content Delivery Network (CDN) deployed in the last mile. To evaluate the solutions proposed by OCEAN, a three step approach was taken in which the solutions were first simulated, later emulated and ultimately deployed in a field trial. In this article, we focus on the emulation of OCEAN components on the iLab.t Virtual Wall. We discuss the benefit of performing emulations, both for the simulations and field trial, through some specific illustrative OCEAN examples.
