# Introducing WALT
You want a highly configurable platform for network experiments?
[Get in touch with us](project#contact) and **build your own WALT plaform!**
A WALT platform mainly provides:
* full **remote control** over nodes (rebooting, remote shell sessions, deploying OS images),
* compatibility with various kinds of nodes:
-**Raspberry Pi** B/B+/2B/3B/3B+/4B nodes
-**PC** nodes booted from a USB dongle
-**distant Raspberry Pi nodes** using WALT ssh-based VPN
***management of node OS images** (clone them from the docker hub, modify them, etc.),
* means to collect, store and query **experiment logs**,
* platform topology **automated discovery**.
A WALT platform is cost-effective, easy to install, easy to use, lightweight, versatile and collaborative.
