Approaches for creating infrastructures for network and Internet innovations
The aim of the present work is to consider the different options for building of test platforms (testbeds) for innovative research mainly on the next generation Internet. Test platforms for next generation networks in various related projects are considered: PlanetLab, Global Environment for Network Innovations (GENI), FIRE (Future Internet Research and Experimentation), FEDERICA, OneLab2, PANLAB, PII ( Panlab II, WISEBED. The results are related to obtaining summary information about the structures and features of the operation of the test platforms. Contributions to the work are the in-depth analysis of the features of building, virtualization, division and provision of shared resources, as well as the ways of unification (federation) and management of test platforms.
