The world’s most powerful wireless network emulator 

Now in General Availability for Research

Colosseum is a wireless emulator with 256 programmable software radios. It enables academic, government, and industry researchers to perform scalable and repeatable experimentation in wireless systems in a large-scale emulation environment. Housed at the Institute for the Wireless Internet of Things at Northeastern University, the system is remotely accessible to users, and resources can be reserved through a simple web interface.

As an RF testbed, Colosseum can be configured to emulate multiple operational environments including a 1 sq. km open field, a dense urban city, a suburban shopping mall, a desert, or anything in-between. It can be used to support cellular network testing, IoT investigations, edge computing research, the implementation of machine learning algorithms, cloud RAN research, and much more.
