As part of a broader organisational restructure, data networking research at Swinburne University of Technology has moved from the Centre for Advanced Internet Architecture (CAIA) to the Internet For Things (I4T) Research Lab.

Although CAIA no longer exists, this website reflects CAIA's activities and outputs between March 2002 and February 2017, and is being maintained as a service to the broader data networking research community.

BART (Broadband Access Research Testbed)

BART Testbed Configuration

The Testbed

The diagram below shows the equipment that is deployed within the BART Testbed and how the testbed is physically configured. Within this environment, we are able to run a number of concurrent virtual ISP configurations which can be connected either to a private/virtual Internet or to the real Internet through the general Swinburne University network. Different servers can be configured to run within the virtual ISP network. For more information on the capabilities of the BART testbed, see here.
