Abstract-- Wireless testbeds are typically distributed over large
physical areas. There are often many nodes, some of which
are difficult to reach on-site or via remote access. As a result,
such nodes may be manageable using only in-band management
techniques making the task of testbed management challenging.
As a remedy, we propose the ATMA framework, a framework
which enables out-of-band management by deploying a multi-
hop mesh network alongside a testbed to manage the latter.
The ATMA mesh network is designed to be self-configuring and
therefore can be installed with minimal effort. As an extension
of the ATMA framework to multi-hop wireless testbeds, we have
designed and developed a suite of tools for the management and
monitoring of multi-hop wireless testbeds. This paper presents
