The platform for telecommunications services analysis (PASITO) is a distributed tests laboratory, which offers engineers the chance to construct, refine and evaluate test scenarios for telecommunication services.

The laboratory contributes to:

  • Optimizing communications resources
  • Designing and adapting new services to the current needs
  • Certifying equipment and services

PASITO is a public infrastructure, based upon the Spanish RedIRIS academic network. It uses varied technologies to enable it to test a wide range of telecommunication services and at the same time guarantee that its activities are isolated from the rest of the academic network’s services. This avoids interference with other activities that are in operation within the Spanish scientific community.

The platform’s main research areas are:

  • Internet architectures
  • Communication protocols
  • Transport technologies with service quality
  • Virtualization and auto-configuration of networks and services
  • Technologies and tools to monitor networks and services
  • Optical services for intensive data projects
  • Large scale information distribution technologies
  • Peer-to-peer systems
  • Mobility services
  • Technologies to improve network security
  • Standards for new generation collaboration services
