Measurement Lab: Networked Science at Scale, Good Data for Everyone

Date & Time:
14:00:00 - 15:00:00,
Thursday 7 June, 2012


Measurement Lab (M-Lab) is a collaborative effort founded by Vint Cerf and a large body of network researchers, dedicated to promoting network science on a large scale. Measurement Lab allows researchers the ability to run open source broadband measurement tools on well-managed, near global infrastructure. All data collected by these tools is made publicly available. This public repository of M-Lab data comprises by far the biggest such resource on the planet, with over 500 terabytes of raw, real-world, globally comparable network measurement data.

This data is being used by researchers as the basis for peer-reviewed papers furthering network science. It is also being used by governments and national regulators. Canada recently joined Greece, the US, and the European Union in choosing M-Lab and M-Lab’s open data as the backbone of their upcoming broadband study. M-Lab’s model creates an ecosystem in which scientists, policy-makers, and consumers have access to good information drawn from the same pool of open, scientifically-sound broadband performance data. Come and learn about M-Lab’s tools, M-Lab’s data, how M-Lab is creating a paradigm for collaborative science as the foundation for good, data-based policy, and how you can help.
