MoonGen wins the Applied Networking Research Prize

Our open source packet generator MoonGen won the Applied Networking Research Prize (ANRP)! The Internet Research Task Force (IRTF) awards this prize for applied networking research that is relevant for standardization efforts and research transitioning into shipping Internet products. The ANRP prize will be awarded at the IETF-100 meeting in Singapore in November 2017. More information on the Applied Networking Research Prize.

MoonGen aims at providing a packet generator for academic use: it's programmable, fast, precise, and runs on inexpensive commodity hardware. This combination ensures that performance evaluations are reliable and reproducible without relying on expensive hardware black-boxes. Researchers can define their entire test setup and logic within a MoonGen script which can then be published together with the results. MoonGen is open source on GitHub.
