The BBC has created a network protocol testing platform written in Python and made it available as an open source application
The Kamaelia project, released on Tuesday, is designed to simplify the creation and testing of new protocols for large-scale media delivery systems. It was created by the BBC's research and development arm, based at Kingswood Warren in Surrey. Kamaelia is designed to allow easy large-scale testing of network protocols while they're being developed. It is written entirely in Python, and takes plug-ins to handle the specifics of the protocol under test.
