What Is It?

SatelliteLab is a network testbed that allows researchers to study the characteristics of the Internet, and to test and evaluate new distributed systems. Unlike other testbeds, anyone can contribute to SatelliteLab by hosting a satellite, e.g., on a home machine, workstation, PDA, or cellphone. Satellites use their machine's spare network capacity to exchange probe packets with other testbed nodes, but they do not run any third-party code. Thus, there is little security or privacy risk in running a satellite. -- Satellite Website, 2008-03-05
