Running an Experiment

PEERING is an open testbed and welcomes experiments from researchers, educators, and network operators. To use the testbed, create an account and submit a proposal. In your proposal, please describe your experiment and its goals. In particular, describe:

The proposal review process allows PEERING staff to verify that experiments follow PEERING's Acceptable Use Policy and remain informed of ongoing experiments so that they can quickly respond to any operational problems or complaints. PEERING staff also provide feedback about experimental design, including possible problems and improvements.

After the approval of your proposal, you will receive certificates that will allow you to establish VPN tunnels to and BGP sessions with PEERING's servers. You can use any software for this, but the default PEERING client software may be a starting point. The project Wiki also contains additional details on PEERING that may be useful.
