Network Traffic Management
Our work in network traffic
management projects fall into two categories. The first are
the projects associated with the management and operation of WAIL.
Since the lab uses actual networking hardware, all of the
infrastructure built to configure and manage WAIL can be easily
transferred into operational networking environments. Lab
management is facilitated through WAILworks - development of
this tool-set is an ongoing project. Another operational
capability required for experiments is to emulate wide area
propagation delays. Our tool for this is WAILnet which has
been constructed to be precise and highly scalable.
The second category of traffic management projects are the
experimental projects. The activity we are focused on at
present is the iSWORD project. The idea of this work is to add
adaptivity via widely distributed measurements to the SWORD
New traffic management projects are underway and details
will be posted soon!
