In order to evaluate and calibrate tools and techniques for bandwidth estimation, CAIDA needs access to a test environment where links can be reconfigured as well as saturated without affecting production traffic. CAIDA's association with the San Diego Supercomputer Center resulted in a unique collaboration with the CalNGI project. CAIDA jointly maintains and uses portions of the CalNGI Network Reference Test Lab.
