Description (last modified by

Demo description paragraph (three sentence minimum):

ARCCN demo for Antonenko.

Network Prototyping Simulator is a simulation system that expands Mininet network emulator to computer cluster. That allow us to reproduce the network with such an amount of nodes that hardly was possible before. The maximum size of network topology in NPS depends on number of cluster nodes with Mininet instances. One cluster node can emulate more than thousand hosts, and an modern server could execute at least 15 cluster nodes packed in virtual machines. As the result, we get about 15 thousands hosts per server. The scalability of NPS makes it possible to emulate really big networks.

By the architecture, NPS saves features of Mininet, so it does not become a clear simulation system, it remains a network prototyping system. Means one could trust the results of such simulation and there is no need to prove correctness and adequacy of the model built.

List of equipment that will need AC connections (e.g. laptop, switch, monitor):

1 laptop, 1 monitor

Just put in the number of connections needed if your demo description already lists equipment.

Total number of wired network connections (sum standard IP and VLAN connections):

Number of wired layer 2 VLANs (if any): Specify VLAN number, if known, approximate bandwidth, and whether tagged or untagged.

Number of wireless network connections (include required bandwidth if significant):


Number of static addresses needed (if any):

Monitor (y/n, specify VGA or DVI):


Specify resolution only if your software has resolution restrictions.

Number of posters (max size poster boards are 30" x 40"):


Special requests: Include any specific network connectivity needs (e.g. VLANs to a particular GENI location, projects you'd like to be near, etc.)
