Abstract: We will have a session on the Colosseum SDN-based emulation platform, which lies at the intersection of software-defined radio (SDR) and advanced network emulation technology. The Colosseum platform offers a fresh approach to wireless network experimentation, making use of genuine radio hardware and advanced channel emulation to establish a versatile and realistic testing environment.
In this talk, we will introduce you to the Colosseum platform and demonstrate how it empowers researchers and engineers to emulate complex wireless scenarios. We will dive into the practical aspects of using Colosseum to emulate a 5G network, with various scenarios, leveraging openairinterface to instantiate a real network, and perform data collection. This session will equip you with the knowledge and skills needed to harness the power of Colosseum for your own network experiments. If we have time we will also cover the use of Colosseum for experimenting with other radio technologies such as WiFi.
