EXTREME (EXperimental Testbed for Research Enabling Mobility Enhancements) is a multi-purpose fully reconfigurable networking testbed that serves to validate proposals on close-to-real scenarios. EXTREME combines the ease of management of multi-user experimental facilities with the flexibility of proof-of-concept testbeds. It supports both cellular and mesh/ad-hoc network topologies by means of technologies such as 802.11 Wireless LANs or UMTS. Topics under study include next-generation network design, mobility in heterogeneous environments (e.g. vertical and horitzontal handovers), self-organized networks (e.g. mesh and ad hoc networks), wireless measurements, and VoIP.
