Abstract: Wireless multi-hop network technology paves a way of ad hoc communication among nodes and facilitates users to access Internet. However, due to the natures of wireless media and distributed operation mode, more performance and security challenges in wireless multi-hop networks are faced, and designing efficient protocols are one of the main research objectives in this field. To solve the problem of relying much on simulation to aid protocols design, the paper proposes an integrated platform, the testbed for high-level analysis of wireless ad-hoc routing design(TH-award), helps to test and analyze the performance and security of designed protocols through implementing them on it. TH-award consists of commercial routers, servers and embedded development boards. By analyzing the work mechanisms of protocols, TH-award is designed with a protocol rule library, a parameter library and a test and analysis library, which permits users not only to customize and deploy their designed protocols, but also to easily get the results in terms of performance and security of them. In the end, we implement comprehensive experiments by TH-award to verify its feasibility.
