Description (last modified by

One-sentence layman's description:

This demo illustrates how the Virtual Id Routing (VIRO) protocol – a novel non-IP protocol – supports user and host mobility in today’s dynamic networks more easily than existing Internet technologies. Visit us if you are interested in learning more about VIRO routing protocol or want to see how VIRO supports user and host mobility.

Demo description paragraph(s):

The rapid growth in the number of computers, mobile devices, smart appliances and other machines connected to the internet today has increased the burden on the network substrate. Such rapid growth also expedited the need to address some of the well-known shortcomings of existing technologies. For instance, existing Internet Protocol (IP) and Ethernet-based network technologies offer poor support for handling host and user mobility, and cannot effectively handle network dynamics such as large failures pro-actively and seamlessly. As a novel “plug-&-play”, scalable, robust and name-space independent routing paradigm, VIRO is designed with two broad sets of goals: i) to support – with minimal manual configuration – (future) large, dynamic networks which connect tens or hundreds of thousands of diverse devices with rich physical topologies; and ii) to meet the high availability, robustness, mobility, manageability and security requirements of these networks and the services running on top of them. We have implemented and deployed VIRO in GENI using the SDN/OVS platform. Our demo shows how VIRO can seamlessly support host mobility and handle other network dynamics automatically. Besides supporting mobility, it is also easier to configure, manage and secure large enterprise and campus networks using VIRO.

To learn more about VIRO routing protocol and our GENI-VIRO project, please visit our project website:

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.

not sure/likely no

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.)

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.

Received request that the Two static IP address connections must be "wired". Updated spreadsheet to track request.
