    915The laboratory-based wireless network emulator uses a novel approach involving a large two-dimensional grid of 400 802.11 radio nodes which can be dynamically interconnected into specified topologies with reproducible wireless channel models.
     
    1117Once the basic protocol or application concepts have been validated on the lab emulator platform, users can migrate their experiments to the field trial network which provides a configurable mix of both high-speed cellular (3G) and 802.11 wireless access in a real-world setting.

    1320Orbit is seeded by a $5.45M/4yr grant from the NSF under the Networking Research Testbeds (NRT) program. The project is a collaborative effort between several university research groups in the NY/NJ region: Rutgers, Columbia, and Princeton, along with industrial partners Lucent Bell Labs, IBM Research and Thomson. ORBIT is being developed and operated by [http://www.winlab.rutgers.edu/ WINLAB, Rutgers University]. A parallel set of [wiki:about/EWP experimental work packages (EWP)] was also funded by NSF in order to drive user requirements during the design of the testbed and also provide benchmarks for the usability and effectiveness of the testbed in performing different types of wireless experiments with ease.

    1522The testbed is available for remote or on-site access by other research groups nationally. Additional research partners and testbed equipment/software contributors are actively sought from both industry and academia.
