WARP: Wireless Open Access Research Platform

About the Project

Rice University's WARP is a scalable and extensible programmable wireless platform, built from the ground up, to prototype advanced wireless networks. The open-access WARP repository allows exchange and sharing of new physical and network layer architectures, building a true community platform. Xilinx FPGAs are used to allow programmability of both physical and network layer protocols on a single platform, which is both deployable and observable at all layers.
