Federated testbeds aim at interconnecting experimental facilities to provide a larger-scale, more diverse and higher performance platform for accomplishing tests and experiments for future Internet new paradigms. In this work the Panlab experimental facilities and specifically the Octopus network testbed has been used in order to experiment on the improvement of QoS features by using the Self-NET software for self-management over a WiMAX network environment. The monitoring and configuration capabilities that different administrative domains provide has been exploited in order to test network and service layers cooperation for more efficient end-to-end self-management. The performance results from the experiments that have been performed prove that the proposed self-management solution and the mechanisms for the selection of the appropriate network or service level adaptation improve end-to-end behaviour and QoS features.
