Abstract: Most current Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) testing environments do not scale very well, due to the fact that each physical node only represents one mobile node. We have built an extensible MANET emulator in order to carry out large-scale experiments with high fidelity. By making use of virtual machine technology (User Mode Linux), each physical host is able to emulate 6 or more virtual mobile nodes, if computing capacity can support. These virtual mobile nodes are interconnected with a mobility-aware virtual switch. New features, like packets corruption, can be added to the virtual switch easily. Without any physical movements, the testing environment can emulate any mobile scenario. Consequently, both high scalability and extensibility can be achieved. Each virtual machine runs as if it is a real mobile node with CPU, hard-disk, and network interface cards. High fidelity can be achieved by running real ad hoc networking applications, such as ad hoc routing daemons, on top of individual virtual mobile node.
