The test bed originally built out within the PSIRP project has been revived for purposes of testing and demonstrating PURSUIT technology. Initial installations have been finished with first internal tests performed successfully – a simple video streaming application successfully transfered video content over several native forwarding nodes to a video subscriber.
The test bed tunnels native Ethernet frames via the public Internet, using openVPN between the various sites. Ethernet topologies are currently configured through scripts but graphical configuration is worked on.
We hope to have finalized the test bed setup during April that will allow for demonstration of the main functions of our prototype. We will update you in the News section about this.
