We present a novel approach to heterogeneousnetworks study based on the implementation of a modular,extensible, and scalable testbed that uses virtualized networkemulators. Our goal is to reproduce complex networks scenariosby interconnecting several emulators, concurrently runningwithin a single hardware platform. This paper analyzes thetestbed performance with simple emulation trials, to verify if it issuitable for assessing multipart networks evaluations.
