Currently, a lot of research is being done to develop physical resource sharing mechanisms in wireless networks. These mechanisms are expected to enhance spectral efficiency, coverage, user satisfaction and operator revenue. In order to prove the feasibility of these mechanisms or to identify practical problems for mechanism optimization, a Hardware-in-The-Loop (HIL) test platform has been developed. This platform consists of multiple broadband wireless experimental devices and can be flexibly configured, allowing extensive signal transmission experiments. Furthermore, different transmission modes of the Radio-Frequency (RF) signals are available, allowing a variety of mechanism evaluation possibilities. Based on this platform, physical resource sharing mechanisms can be efficiently implemented and tested. First test results are shown in this paper.
