In this paper we present an overview of WISEBED, a largescale wireless sensor network testbed, which is currently being built for research purposes. This project is led by a number of European Universities and Research Institutes, hoping to provide scientists, researchers and companies with an environment to conduct experiments with, in order to evaluate and validate their sensor network-related work. The initial planning of the project includes a large, heterogeneous testbed, consisting of at least 9 geographically disparate networks that include both sensor and actuator nodes, and scaling in the order of thousands (currently being in total 550 nodes).We present here the overall architecture of WISEBED, focusing on certain aspects of the software ecosystem surrounding the project, such as the Open Federation Alliance, which will enable a view of the whole testbed, or parts of it, as single entities, and the testbed's tight integration with the Shawn network simulator. We also present examples of the actual hardware used currently in the testbed and outline the architecture of two of the testbed's sites.
