Demo Title: International SDX Demo

One-sentence layman's description: This demos shows working prototypes of Software Defined Exchanges operating in the US and Europe.

Who should see this demo? Example: Attendees interested in Emerging Internet Architecture and specifically in Software Defined Networks and Infrastructure.

Demo description paragraph(s):

The Software Defined Exchange (SDX) is a recently defined concept that is motivated by the need of applications to, via software programs, dynamically acquire and control network, computation and storage resources. An SDX is a meeting place where resource owners (e.g., cloud or network operators) advertise the availability of their wares and where applications go to identify, pay for and acquire resources to support their needs. These needs may change over time and the SDX supports such dynamic reconfiguration. In effect the SDX allows applications to acquire a software defined “Slice” of the Internet and resources that are connected to it. It is a traditional market bringing together sellers and buyers of goods. Its availability will democratize the ability of new applications to compete in a variety of markets served by different resource providers. The SDX together will “slicing” and “software defined infrastructure” have the potential to revolutionize the Internet and to enable an exciting new generation of applications. Of course, this very high level description belies the complex financial, policy, security and technical problems that must be overcome to fully realize the potential of the SDX. Prototype SDXs are now being established to explore and address these problems in a collaborative atmosphere.

At this demo we are going to present an architecture proposition for an SDX and two working prototype SDXs interoperating, one in the US and one in Europe.

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

Please ticket update with equipment needs, thanks!

Thanks for the demo submission, I will follow up with confirmation of available resources.

Of note, NSF will be looking at this wiki page, so please feel free to update if you notice any errors or wish to update your demo description.

Tom Lehman is the only person at this demo. He will share a table with Brecht Vermuelen, and be near Starlight SDX demo. Poster only.

Demo participant list on wiki should read:

Niky Riga Marshall Brinn Brecht Vermeulen Tom Lehman Larry Landweber

But only Tom is likely to be at the table.

There will be one poster.
