We present PaDIS Emulator, a fully automated platform to evaluate CDN-ISP collaboration for better content delivery, traffic engineering, and cost reduction. The PaDIS Emulator enables researchers as well as CDN and ISP operators to evaluate the beneļ¬ts of collaboration using their own operational networks, configuration, and cost functions.

The PaDIS Emulator consists of three components: the network emulation, the collaboration mechanism, and the performance monitor. These layers provide scalable emulation of the interaction between an ISP or a number of ISPs with multiple CDNs and vice versa. PaDIS Emulator design is flexible in order to implement a wide range of collaboration mechanisms on virtualized or real hardware, and evaluate them before introduction to operational networks.
