This paper describes a physical test-bed for evaluating the performance of MAC and networking algorithms targeted at a network of specks called the specknet. The Perspeckz-64 is a workbench available to researchers to conduct experiments remotely on an ensemble of up to 64 speck prototypes called the ProSpeckz. The firmware on the ProSpeckz can be programmed wirelessly to effect different network connectivity and traffic generators, and the platform has been instrumented to collect statistical information for individual nodes as well as power consumption data for the entire network.
