Emulab - Network Emulation Testbed Home

Welcome to Nome

Nome is part of PRObE, an NSF-sponsored project providing a large-scale, low-level systems research facility. It is a collaborative effort by the New Mexico Consortium, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Utah, and the University of New Mexico.

Emulab is a network testbed, giving researchers a wide range of environments in which to develop, debug, and evaluate their systems. The name Emulab refers both to a facility and to a software system. The primary Emulab installation is run by the Flux Group, part of the School of Computing at the University of Utah. Nome is a separate installation of the Emulab software operated by PRObE at the New Mexico Consortium. The Nome testbed consists of 256 nodes. More information can be found at the links below:

There are also installations of the Emulab software at more than two dozen sites around the world, ranging from testbeds with a handful of nodes up to testbeds with hundreds of nodes. Emulab is widely used by computer science researchers in the fields of networking and distributed systems. It is also designed to support education, and has been used to teach classes in those fields.
