# Calibration

Calibration network is the most realistic simulation of the Filecoin mainnet:

  • Prospective storage miners can experience more realistic sealing performance and hardware requirements due to the use of final proofs constructions and parameters.
  • Prospective storage clients can store and retrieve real data on the network. Clients can participate in deal-making workflows and storage + retrieval functionality.
  • Same sector size as mainnet. The calibration network supports 32 GiB and 64 GiB sectors.

# Deprecated networks

Here is a list of networks that are now deprecated:

Name Description Deprecated on
Nerpa A test network with tiny sector sizes. This network was for app developers to test the very basic functionality of their applications before moving over to the calibration testnet. 2021-08-16
