    3 SB4 is intended Rf matrix, shielded enclosures new nodes. Given the proximity of  the main grid, testbed with more than two nodes has to be isolated and we use of RF matrix and shielded enclosure. In addition, the deployment with RF matrix and enclosures also creates new capabilities in terms of topology control
     3SB4 is an ORBIT sandbox that is intended to support medium size experiments
     4with up to 9 nodes with tightly controlled topologies. The single Atheros device
     5in each node is connected to the 9 inputs of([[http://www.jfwindustries.com/ JWF]]) 50PMA-012 RF
     6matrix switch. This switch, with its programmable attenuators, enables creation of 36 possible
     7RF paths between the nodes and thus facilitates creation of large number of topologies in which
     8nodes can be organized. Each of the 36 attenuators can be set to a maximum of 63 dB of attenuation.
     9In order to achieve good isolation
     10between the RF devices in the nodes as well as given the physical proximity to the main grid which would result in interference, each of the SB4
     11nodes is stored in [[http://www.ramseyelectronics.com/cgi-bin/commerce.exe?preadd=action&key=STE2300 Ramsey Electronics STE2300 shielded enclosure]] which provide up to 80 dB of isolation.
