Topology Virtualization for Wireless Sensor Network Testbeds

In recent years Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have enjoyed a growing amount of attention. One particularly promising prospect is to employ WSNs as an extension of the future internet into the real world; this motivates experimentally driven research to evaluate and benchmark new concepts on WSNs. With our poster we will show our approach to virtualizing Wireless Sensor Network testbeds. With this technique we are able to reconfigure the topology of a WSN testbed without changing the physical location of nodes; it even allows building virtual topologies on top of federated testbeds.
