In this paper, we propose a hybrid Testbed enabling Run-time Operations for Wireless network Applications (TROWA). TROWA is a wireless network emulator and its simulation core is based on the network simulator MobiREAL. TROWA can emulate packet transmissions in multi-hop wireless networks in real-time, with realistic mobility models of urban pedestrians. Also it provides APIs that allow real stations to connect with their simulated networks with a little modification of applications and

This enables performance analysis and algorithm validation in an efficient way. Additionally, TROWA can improve the accuracy of real-time simulation by prioritizing the simulation events. By several experiments for a VoIP application, we show the usefulness of TROWA.
