This is a demo of the Octant technology. The demo uses only a limited set of
latency measurements for localization. We have implemented other techniques
for achieving high fidelity localization information that are not part of the
demo yet. Our techniques can be used to localize any node in the network, and
are a factor of 3 more accurate than previous approaches.
The current demo requires the target to respond to ICMP ECHO
requests and to be located in the US. Nodes situated outside the US will
result in very high localization error due to our current selection
of landmarks. Retrying queries may improve the accuracy as additional
latency information is collected on each retry.
