M-Lab Site Hosting Application
If you are here, it means that you are considering hosting an M-Lab site.

Thank you! M-Lab exists due to host contributions like yours.

The goal of this form is to help us understand how you can meet the requirements to host an M-Lab site, and to give us information that we can use to start the hosting process.
If you don't know the answers to all of the questions, you can complete them later. If your answers change, you can let us know later.

If you'd like to review the hosting requirements for site hosts in detail and understand the rationale, you can find all the information in this doc http://www.measurementlab.net/publications/mlab-technical-review.pdf.
For more general information about M-Lab, please refer to http://measurementlab.net.

If you have comments and questions about the form or about hosting an M-Lab site, you can use the "Comment" text box at the bottom of this form.

Basic qualifying requirements
Where will the site be hosted? *
Please provide city, region, and country.
Your answer
How much dedicated upstream bandwidth can you provide to the site? *
An M-Lab site needs dedicated bandwidth that is at least significantly higher than what is available to common Internet users in the hosting country, to be able to run several simultaneous tests and make sure that the tests are not limited by the server upstream. Currently M-Lab sites require 1 Gbps minimum uplink bandwidth, with preference for 10 Gbps where possible. Please specify separately the upstream bandwidth for local traffic and for international traffic, in case they differ.
Your answer
Can you host 5 Rack Units (RUs)?
An M-Lab site currently requires 5 RU space for one switch and four servers. If you can host fewer than 5 RUs, specify how many RUs in the "Other" option.
Can you provide a /26 IPv4 prefix? *
The prefix must be globally routed and dedicated to the site.
Can you provide a /64 IPv6 prefix? *
The prefix must be globally routed and dedicated to the site.
Which kind of IPv6 connectivity can you provide to the site? *
If the IPv6 connectivity will be tunneled, which kind of tunnel will be used?

Deployment-specific details
If you cannot answer right now any of the questions below, you can edit the answers later.
Please enter the /26 IPv4 prefix.
Your answer
Please enter the /64 IPv6 prefix.
Your answer
Please enter your ASN.
If you don't have an ASN, enter the ASN of the upstream provider for the site.
Your answer
Who will be the transit providers of the site?
Please specify separately the transit to reach local users and the transit to international users, if they differ.
Your answer
Please confirm that the upstream router will provide the M-Lab switch with a static route.
M-Lab switches don't do BGP routing and get a static route from the upstream router. More info here: http://www.measurementlab.net/publications/mlab-technical-review.pdf
Please confirm that the M-Lab traffic will not go through local firewalls or other network filters.
Please confirm that the port of the upstream router that will be connected to the M-Lab switch will be (at least) 1Gbps.
This only refers to the port media speed and not to the upstream bandwidth.
Can you provide 4 servers that meet the M-Lab server requirements?
Can you provide a switch that meets the M-Lab requirements?
