Orchestrating a live field trial of wireless mobile networking involves significant cost andlogistical issues relating to mobile platforms, support personnel, network and experiment automation andsupport equipment. The significant cost and logistics required to execute such a field trial can also belimiting in terms of achieving meaningful test results that exercise a practical number of mobile nodesover a significant set of test conditions within a given time. There is no argument that field trials are animportant component of dynamic network testing. A field test of prototype will show whether simulationswere on right track or not, but that’s a big leap to take; going from the simulator directly to the realthing. In conceiving our work, we envisioned a mobile network emulation system that is low cost, flexibleand controllable. This paper describes our wireless MANET test bed under development which emulatesan actual MANET. Here, we focuses that, this test bed allows the users to automatically generatearbitrary logically network topologies in order to perform real time operations on adhoc network at arelatively low cost in a laboratory environment without having to physically move the nodes in the adhocnetwork. Thus, we try to “compress” wireless network so that it fits on a single table.
