Iris Testbed Layout

The CTVR Iris testbed is currently being reconfigured. The node locations may not reflect exactly those shown in the diagram. For downtimes make sure to check the calendar.

The testbed is laid out as follows. Currently there are 8 remotely accessible Quad core machines each equipped with a USRP2/N210 and an XCVR2450 daughterboard. The USRP2s have a 24 MHz bandwidth (using Gigabit Ethernet to communicate between the USRP and the computer). The daughterboards are capable of transmitting between 2.4 and 2.5 GHz and also between 4.9 and 5.9 GHz.

The testbed diagram shows the "fixed" testbed layout; however, a some "custom" layouts may also be accommodated for specific experiments.

Additionally, before running an experiment on the testbed, experimenters must gain login details for the ctvr-gateway node, through which all of the other testbed nodes are accessed. Information on applying for login details can be found here. Experiments must also previously be scheduled on the testbed calendar, details of which can be found here.
