Multi-homing denotes the simultaneous connection of endpoints (e.g.\~cloud servers, smartphones, etc.) to multiple Internet Service Providers\~(ISP). That is, the endpoints remain reachable even when some of the ISPs have problems (e.g.\~malfunction of hardware or break of cables). Besides the redundancy aspect, multi-homing can also make load sharing by multi-path transport possible, i.e.\~increasing the application throughput by utilising multiple paths simultaneously. In order to evaluate and test mulit-homed systems, the Simula Research Laboratory is currently building up the NorNet testbed. It consists of distributed research nodes located all over the country of Norway as well as some international locations, providing researchers the possibility to run experiments in real-world, multi-homed Internet setups. In this talk, we first introduce the NorNet testbed as well as its deployment status. After that, we present some research results of the ongoing research at the Simula Research Laboratory on multi-path transport with Multi-Path TCP\~(MPTCP). Particularly, it will also show how the NorNet testbed can be utilized for research at the New York University\~(NYU) as well.
