Telecommunication Testbed Repeatability Assessment



Jeanne Quimby, Jake Rezac, Mary Gregg, Michael Frey, Jason Coder, Anna Otterstetter


Telecommunication testbeds are a fundamental tool in communication research, enabling prototyping and validating new ideas. Unfortunately, these testbeds are often highly complex, costly, and challenging to operate, requiring simultaneous Open System Interconnection multilayer measurements at different monitoring locations. Here, we present the methodology we used to assess the reproducibility of our measurements. We provide concrete examples through measurands from recent a pilot study.
