The “GEANT Testbeds Service” (GTS) offers user defined experimental networks to the network research community for the purpose of testing novel networking and telecommunications concepts, at scale, and across a geographically realistic European footprint.
GTS is designed to support research teams investigating innovative SDN based solutions and needing a high performance distributed infrastructure.
GTS can also be used by application and software development teams needing an isolated testbed to prove their designs without impacting on live internet traffic.
GTS is logically isolated from the production GÉANT network to ensure the integrity of live applications.
GTS can support multiple isolated networks simultaneously allowing teams to work without affecting each other.
