Active networks introduce the idea of
programmable and dedicated processing facilities within network
components such as routers. This project experiments on active
networking programming environments and services by building an active
testbed. This testbed, intended to concentrate on a small and controlled
scale the various difficulties found on the Internet, allows for a rapid
and easy prototyping of active protocols and services.
The work is related to the Tamanoir active environment
and serves for the experimentation of active reliable multicast
protocols and active QoS protocols.
