The OneLab initiative provides an open, general-purpose, shared experimental facility, both large-scale and sustainable, which allows European industry and academia to innovate and assess the performance of their solutions. Based on the results of several different European and national projects, OneLab offers access to a range of  tools and testbeds including PlanetLab Europe, the NITOS wireless testbed, and other federated testbeds.
