Yet Another Traffic Engineering System


YATES is a software framework that enables rapid prototyping and evaluation of traffic engineering systems. Yates comes with two backends: a network simulator that calculates congestion, throughput, loss, latency, etc., and an SDN-based implementation that can be used to validate results obtained via simulation and also provides an easy path to deployment.
