Demo Title: SDXs: Software Define Network Exchanges at StarLight and Partner Sites


Joe Mambretti Northwestern University Jim Chen Northwestern University

One-sentence layman's description: This demo shows a working prototype of SDXs at the StarLight International /National Communications Exchange Facility and partner sites, which enable the exchange research traffic among different types of Software Define Networks (SDNs) and legacy networks.

Who should see this demo?

Attendees interested in

(1)Identifying the current challenges in managing SDN networks in production exchanges (2)Proposals for addressing these challenges and the prototype demonstrations (3)Creating virtual exchange prototypes for specialized communities: SDXs for Genomics Data (4)Creating virtual exchange prototypes for specialized communities: SDXs for Cloud testbeds

Demo description paragraph(s):

The challenges in connecting and exchanging different types of network traffic for research and education communities are not well known topics outside of the network exchange communities. The recent proliferation of SDN/OpenFlow technology brings this challenge to the attention of all the interested parties.

The StarLight and partner sites present through these demonstrations current prototype work underway to address such challenges, the prototype SDXs include Network Service Interface (NSI), ofNSI (OpenFlow NSI), GENI AM integration, virtual SDXs for Open Genomic Data Common and Virtual SDXs for Chameleon Cloud, one of the National Science Foundation’s NSFCloud testbeds.
