GENI Infrastructure and Measurement Projects

GENICloud and InstaGENI Demo

GENICloud: Demonstration of a persistent Cloud infrastructure over multiple sites and continents, tied to the PlanetLab Control Framework. -InstaGENI: GENI Project Office approved racks for networking experimentation at sites.

GEMINI: A GENI Instrumentation and Measurement Infrastructure

This demo will showcase the current status and emerging directions in the GEMINI project. We will demonstrate the process for adding and using I&M data for experimenters and will show data being gathered from an existing experiment.

LEARN-ORCA cluster and VLAN poster

BISmark: network monitoring_ visualization and event-driven control

BISmark is a home router-based measurement, visualization and control system that is being widely deployed and provides a platform for extending GENI into the home. The project extends the previously demonstrated Resonance control system to provide a general framework for even-driven network control.

GIMI: Large-scale GENI Instrumentation and Measurement Infrastructure

In this GEC13 demo we will perform OML-capable Iperf throughput measurements from locations all over the US (potentially all over the world) to instances in different clouds (EC2, GENICloud, ORCA). We will demonstrate how such a measurement can be performed in an automated fashion by i) allocating required resources, ii) instantiating images that include pre-installed measurement tools, iii) permanently storing the data in a distributed repository, and iv) making results available via the GIMI portal. The result will show the network capacities from many locations into several cloud platforms. This information might be critical in deciding where an application that is highly dependent on networking performance should be hosted.

ExoGENI demo

ExoGENI team will demonstrate the capabilities of the early ExoGENI deployment under ORCA control, including virtual topology embedding with and without OpenFlow support, creating slices across multiple geographically distributes sites, using a combination of virtual and bare-metal instances and more.

InstaGENI rack demonstration

The first two InstaGENI racks are scheduled to be installed at the University of Utah and Princeton. We will demonstrate the creation of slices on these racks, and describe the hardware, software, and uses cases for the racks.

DIGOBREG Demo and Poster

Corporation for National Research Initiatives (CNRI) will be demonstrating the functionality of the Measurement Data Archive prototype, which is implemented using the Digital Object Architecture.

The Measurement Data Archive prototype system consists of two components: 1) User Workspace and 2) Object Archive. The User Workspace component is an entry point for users (e.g., experimenters, instrumentation researchers, etc.) to store and transfer measurement data, which could be in a variety of forms (e.g., formatted datasets, raw files, etc.). Data and metadata files managed in the user workspace can be archived for long-term storage in an Object Archive. Once data is archived, a persistent and unique identifier is created.

IMF message server

The IMF project goals of the current spiral include showing authentication (of user/entity using message service, and message sent by that user) and authorization (of the user to send the message), to show an experiment controller and resource controller modeled after the corresponding OMF entities using this service to communicate, and also how a simple repository service can be built as a client of this message service. The demo will showcased these current IMF capabilities.

OnTimeMeasure Demo

We will demonstrate how I&M capabilities of OnTimeMeasure software/service available for GENI experimenters can be used in an integrated manner with Flack/ProtoGENI, INSTOOLS, Gush, OMNI and LAMP.  GEC13 Demo Poster of OnTimeMeasure

Demo Participants: Chris Small, Scott Jensen, Peng Chen, Yuan Luo Affiliation: Indiana University

Demonstrating the capture and visualization of provenance for GENI experiments using using the NetKarma provenance registry, Cytoscape provenance visualization plug-ins, and the NetKarma portal. NetKarma captures the provenance of GENI experiments from logs and RSpecs and integrates additional metadata from GMOC regarding an experiment's topology. The demo presented on capturing and using the provenance of GENI experiments is captured in our poster  Role of Provenance in Visualizing Packet Throughput and Packet Loss that illustrates the use of provenance to show network throughput based on WiMAX DDoS attack experiments by researchers at Clemson. The NetKarma Portal demo at GEC 13 which provides GENI experimenters the ability to easily upload data and visualize provenance is captured in our poster  NetKarma Portal.

Federating CRON with PlanetLab MAX with Tree-mode Network Stitching

Demo participants: Seung-Jong Park, Lin Xue at LSU, Tom Lehman at ISI Affiliation: Louisiana State University and Information Sciences Institute The CRON@ProtoGENI and MAX@PlanetLab will demonstrate collaborately how to reserve resources from two different kinds of federation sites through Internet2 ION service. To stitch those resources, a tree-mode stitching method with OMNI tool will used at the demonstration. Over the slice from federation, PIs will show how multiple cloud computing data centers can be federated over high speed 10Gbps optical networks.

Mid-Atlantic Crossroads (MAX) Demo

In this demonstration we will show multi-aggregate stitching between the MAX and CRON Aggregates. This will include the provision of resources across the MAX Aggregate, CRON Aggregate, Internet2 ION, and LONI Regional network. In addition, we will describe this functionality in the context of the larger tree-mode multi-aggregate stitching architecture and implementation work underway. We will also show the incorporation of OpenFlow network regions into the overall stitching process. Additional information is available here  MAX GEC13 Demonstration Information

GENI ShadowNet

We will demonstrate the integration of the ShadowNet virtualization control software with the measurement and instrumentation toolset.

Federation and International Projects

Demo Participants: Deep Medhi, Parikshit Juluri, Xuan Liu, Shuai Zhao. Affiliation: University of Missouri – Kansas City Demonstration of Dynamic Network Reconfiguration on GpENI (Great Plains Environment for Network Innovation) programmable testbed: GpENI is an international testbed centered on a Midwest US regional optical network that is programmable at all layers of the protocol stack, using PlanetLab, VINI, and DCN, and interconnected to ProtoGENI in the US and G-Lab and ResumeNet in Europe. We will demonstrate Dynamic Network Reconfiguration on GpENI-VINI, which includes the changing of network topology, packet flow during the reconfiguration process.

K-GENI demo

K-GENI international Future Internet testbed between Korea and the US for GENI collaborations will be introduced with recent updates, and we will demonstrate a software platform developed for the federated network operations and management based on DvNOC and GMOC collaborative works.The federated network operations and management demo includes network abstraction for operations, open data sharing mechanism between international testbeds, and dynamic global identifier generation & allocation for virtual network slices across national boundaries.

Syndicate demo

Syndicate is a distributed read-write filesystem which harnesses a CDN to deliver file data to a scalable number of readers. It provides the semantics of a traditional distributed filesystem, but by leveraging a CDN it decouples read performance from file persistence. This allows users to keep their data in Syndicate on the media of their choice without impacting aggregate read bandwidth. We will present a walk-through of the functionality Syndicate offers to users, and show how many readers spread across PlanetLab can concurrently read a large file from an origin server's USB stick by streaming the data through a CoBlitz CDN instance in VICCI.

MySlice over SFA GUI demo

We will demonstrate a web-based resource management tool called MySlice, which makes it easy to list, filter and attach resources made available through PlanetLab’s SFA control framework, annotated with useful information from different monitoring sources (e.g., reliability and utilization over time, geographic and network location, and more).

Features of MySlice:

MySlice uses SFA’s delegation capabilities to permit an SFA client to run on a remote webserver.
Resources can be selected using measurement data gathered from a number of independent measurement and monitoring projects, including TopHat, CoMon, and SWORD

Elements of MySlice are already in use as part of the standard PlanetLab web interface, used by hundreds of users.

Experimentation over OFELIA testbed: Power-aware Routing

This demo presents a real experiment over the OFELIA i2CAT-island's infrastructure. Taking advantage of the SDN paradigm to control the routing depending on the power consumption of the network, this demo shows the possibilities of experimentation provided by OFELIA OpenFlow-enable testbed and its Control Framework.

Parallel service dependent load-balancing

Parallel service dependent load-balancing: We provide a technical demonstration for the idea of a typical data-center required load-balancing solution with OpenFlow. The demo shows parallel load-balancing on the OFELIA TUB-Island using tools like FlowVisor and NOX including the developed load-balancing plug-ins. We will show how to create an virtual topology and measure the real hardware performance of the described load-balancing scenario.

Development of Education and Training Resources for GENI Experimenters

Adaptive Source Routing on GENI

Today's routing techniques on the Internet rely completely on decisions within the network. Lacking an end-to-end view, routing algorithms therefore often react slowly to dynamics in the network, and do not take into account the type of traffic being routed. For example, traffic with the demand of high bandwidth is not distinguished from services needing low latency such as real-time applications.

This project is investigating the alternate approach of source-controlled routing (SCR). Assuming a source node holds information about possible routes to destination nodes including information about the characteristics of the different paths obtained by continuous probing, a source can decide which path along the network a particular packet should traverse for optimal results. In addition to that, multipath routing can be used to dramatically decrease latency and routing-related delay with a reasonable overhead on traffic when sending packets simultaneously via different links, using only the packet which arrives first at the destination.

Wireless Projects

WiMAX at NYU-Poly: Cooperative Packet Recovery over Heterogeneous Networks

 NYU-Poly GEC13 Poster

We will demonstrate a protocol we have implemented for cooperative packet recovery over heterogeneous networks (e.g. GENI WiMAX and WiFi). The cooperative recovery protocol takes advantage of the multiplicity of radios on modern networked devices to improve the performance of a multimedia multicast service that serves clients with varying wireless channel conditions. We will demonstrate our implementation over the open-access GENI testbed at NYU-Poly.

Wideband Cognitive Radio Demonstration

Demonstration of wide-band radio transceiver for the GENI CogRadio system. The demonstration will highlight the WDR (Wide Dynamic Range) radio operating on an FPGA platform. Signal analyzers will demonstrate the system operating at 100MHz, 400MHz, 900Mhz and 2400MHz on a combination of cabled connections (for licensed bands) and free space (for unlicensed bands). The demonstration will also include a poster detailed the software infrastructure employed.

WiMax and CIAN collaboration

This will be a demo of the current initiative to integrate the WiMax basestation with the "smart optical switching test bed" at Columbia University. This is a collaboration between groups at Columbia to demonstrate the smart cross-layer switching of WiMax data through an optical switch with dynamic routing.

Streaming between vehicle and infrastructure using Network Coding

The demo will consist of a video stream from a vehicle to infrastructure over one or more wireless channels (WIMAX and/or WiFi). The quality of the channel is impaired by mobility and external interference. Network Coding can improve video quality by introducing redundancy when needed. This demo will show the effectiveness of Network Coding in such a disruptive environment.

Clemson Wimax Demo

Demo participants: Katherine Cameron, Ilker Ozcelik, Richard Brooks
Affiliation: Clemson University
In today’s world the Internet is an environment where people not only communicate but also share knowledge, do business, attend school, and even socialize. As a result of growing dependence on the Internet, one of the biggest concerns of Internet users is security. Unfortunately, the number of security incidents increases exponentially every year. A Distributed Denial-of-Service attack (DDoS attack) disables network services to legitimate users by flooding them. The recent attacks on trusted financial websites, Mastercard and PayPal, are an example of the need for security against DDoS attacks. One of the major problems with Distributed Denial of Service attacks is how difficult it is to detect the source of the attack, because of the many components involved. There are two studies of DDoS attacks that we are currently investigating and have presented in the demo session of GEC13. In the first study, we obtain the Internet traffic signature to use as background traffic in future experiments. By using real background traffic we will investigate the effectiveness of theoretical DDoS Attack detection techniques on GENI. You can access our poster :  Performance Analysis of DDoS Detection Algorithms on Operational Network GEC13 Poster. In the second study we are investigating how one can manipulate system parameters of the Bandwidth Contention Resolution process of WiMAX to adversely affect user throughput and packet-loss rate and potentially use the parameters to implement a DDoS attack. Please see our  WiMAX DDoS poster presented on this topic.

Demonstration of Robust Delivery Services and Multi-homing in MobilityFirst FIA

Demo Participants: Kai Su, Feixiong Zhang, Chunhui Zhang*, Kiran Nagaraja, Ivan Seskar, Dipankar Raychaudhuri

Affiliation: WINLAB, Rutgers University. *University of Massachusetts, Lowell.

Poster:  PDF

We demonstrate the benefits of a generalized storage-aware routing protocol (GSTAR) for the future mobile-heavy Internet. The protocol exploits in-network storage to address intermittent access-link qualities and mobile-node disconnections to efficiently and reliably deliver data to end nodes. This is done by taking advantage of storage resources at routers, where local Store-or-Forward decisions are made to address unfavorable link conditions. The protocol's feature of dynamic path choices while delivering to multi-homed (WiFi, WiMAX access networks) devices (with converged stack) is also presented in this demonstration. In this demo, we use nodes from the GENI Mesoscale deployment and the GENI/ORBIT outdoor testbed at WINLAB (Rutgers University). More information on MobilityFirst FIA project can be found here:
