Summary of Spiral 3 Goals


  • Programmable Packet Networks over Dynamic Circuit Substrate (Jeff Chase, Xiaowei Yang)
  • Optical-layer experiments (BEN network, ERM sensors and actuators, IMF capabiliites)
  • Mobile wireless experiments (DOME)
  • Nowcasting experiments, using weather data from ViSE radar, processed in local cluster and/or cloud (ViSE and DICLOUD)
  • Sensor network experiments (Kansei, Neteye)
  • Robotics experiments (OKGems)


  • Researchers can obtain and stitch resources from multiple aggregates
  • Researchers from other CFs (e.g., protoGENI) can obtain resources from Cluster D aggregates via GENI AM API
  • Researchers in Cluster D can obtain resources from aggregates other CFs (e.g., protoGENI)via GENI AM API

Demos for GEC10

  • Demo experiment where Cluster D researchers obtain and stitch resources from multiple Cluster D sites (and backbone domains) using their SM.
  • Demo experiment where protoGENI researchers obtain resources via GENI AM API v1.0, using RSpec resource description.
  • Demo operations portal into Cluster D site, for status and logs, with connections to GMOC

Demos for GEC11

  • Demo experiment where Cluster D researchers get resources from protoGENI aggregates via GENI AM API v1.0 (or possibly protoGENI AM API) (using RSpec resource description)
  • Demo experiment where Cluster D researchers stitch L2 connectivity across Cluster C (protoGENI), and Cluster D sites
  • Demo experiment where Cluster D researchers include tools (e.g., GUSH) to help authorize, reserve and assign resources via “ORCA SM API v1.0” XMLRPC interface to their SM (similar to protoGENI AM API, or possibly same as GENI AM API v2.0)
