GENI Infrastructure and Measurement Projects

GMOC Service Desk

GMOC Service Desk will Demo various workflows such as Emergency Stop, GMOC Aggregate turn-up (Regional or Campus/Rack), GENI Racks Support, Disruptive Experiment Reservations and other interactions with the GENI Community. Campuses with expecting GENI Racks or Regionals that are expecting to connect into the GENI OpenFlow Core Network will have opportunity to get familiar with GMOC processes and expectations for their anticipated turn-up. You will also have an opportunity to see the tools that GMOC uses to provide Meta Operations support for the GENI Community and Experimenters.



We will demonstrate the GENI destop, which implemented a new login method, consolidated the parsing of manifest, and incorporated functions of displaying measurement data collected by GEMINI.


OML within GIMI

This demonstration will presents the latest features of the OML framework developed within the GIMI (Large-scale GENI Instrumentation and Measurement Infrastructure) project. OML allows the instrumentation of any type of resources, and the collection of any type of measurements that they generate in a scalable manner. The latest OML release includes features such as the support for metadata, cross-reference of measurement streams, and the instrumentation of OML itself using OML.



Demonstrate capabilities of individual ExoGENI racks and ExoGENI as a joint aggregate.

  • Intra- and Inter-rack slices
  • Modifying existing slices by adding and removing compute capacity
  • SDN/OpenFlow support


  • Ilia Baldine, Ilia Baldine

Internet2 will demo progress toward implementing GENI interfaces on its Advanced Layer2 Service production network. We will show our production Layer 2 VLAN service running on top of FlowVisor, and our progress toward an aggregate manager for the production Layer 2 VLAN service as well as an aggregate manager using stitching.


Mid-Atlantic Crossroads (MAX)

In this demonstration we will show the details of the GENI stitching architecture and current implementation. This will include demonstration of a prototype Stitching Computation Services (SCS). We will also show how SCS interacts client tools and utilizes advertisement RSpecs and request RSpecs to compute stitching solutions and workflow information. We will also describe the details of the prototype aggregate manager I2 is running to support GENI stitching on ION, which is based on code developed by MAX.

Cisco GENI Rack

Live demonstration of RENCi's ExoGENI software stack running on Cisco's data-center class Unified Computing Systems B-Series platform and NetApp FAS storage system.


Federation and International Projects

Slice Around the World

The "Slice Around the World" demonstration initiative was established to demonstrate the powerful potential of designing and implementing world-wide environments consisting of Global computational and storage clouds closely integrated with highly programmable networks. The initiative has been established by network research centers/research labs that are participating in multiple next generation networking activities, including those developing large scale distributed experimental network research environment, such as those be implemented by such initiatives as the NSF Global Environment for Network Innovations (GENI), the EU Future Internet Research Environment (FIRE), the Japanese New Generation Internet, the Korean Future Internet initiatives, the German Future Internet Lab (G-Lab), the Brazilian future Internet initiative and others. These environments are being developed by researchers for researchers. An important goal for many of the current projects would be to have persistent global environments directly developed and managed by the research community to support their experimental research.


FLARE and WiVi

We will present FLARE (deeply programmable network node) and WiVi (deeply programmable WiFi access points). This time we will show the architecture design of them as well as applications, such as online video real-time transcoding and beaconcast (that is broadcast data communication via beacons).



We will be showing our progress of VNode system, especially focusing on performance isolation and resource isolation. We are planning to prepare three kinds of demos, one for resource isolation, second for packet cache with toy block networking, and at last for federation.


Experiments and Education

Education using Seattle

This demonstration shows the Seattle testbed, a world-wide platform for research and education. Seattle spans tens of thousands of end user machines and gives researchers access to resources not typically seen on other systems, like laptops, tablets, and mobile phones.

We will demonstrate the utility of Seattle in research and the classroom and our integration with the GENI clearinghouse.


GENI Experimenter Portal

Demonstrate the GENI Portal interface to the GENI Clearinghouse. We will demonstrate logging in to the GENI portal and creating and managing projects and slices (which are created at the GENI Clearinghouse). We will demonstrate reserving resources on the GENI racks directly through the portal and also via integration with a GUI resource reservation tool (Flack) and a command line resource reservation tool (omni).


SECON: Video Streaming Service

We hope to give a demo on using keyword-based queries to retrieve matching streaming video events that a user can then choose which one to stream.


ProtoGENI / InstaGENI

In the past few months, several InstaGENI racks have been brought up. We will be demonstrating the capabilities of these racks.


InstaGENI / TransGeo

In this demonstration we will show a number of InstaGENI racks, together with ProtoGENI nodes at the University of Utah, GENICloud nodes at TU-Kaiserslautern, VNodes at the University of Tokyo, and other federated resources from the University of Ghent (Belgium) and two Brazilian institutions running a collaborative, multi-site Geographic Information System calculation, with layer-2 networking between sites provided by iGENI and PacketCaching and acceleration by the VNode project of NICT and the University of Tokyo.

Wireless Projects

Vertical Handoff Using OpenFlow

This demonstration will show how OpenFlow, Open vSwitch, and the Floodlight controller can be used as a vertical handoff solution between different network interfaces. Traffic will be generated from a server application, and with the handoff solution, will be sent using various networking interfaces to a client. The client will receive the traffic from the server. The interfaces used on the server will be alternated to show the handoff process.

Network Coding on ProtoGENI for Vehicular Networks

Network coding using ProtoGENI testbed will be demonstrated. By implementing network coding and multipath forwarding capabilities in the core network, this demo is designed for supporting efficient broadband data delivery in infrastructure-based vehicular networks at Clemson.


Supporting MobilityFirst in OpenFlow Based SDNs

MobilityFirst (clean slate FIA project) has some unique features such as a globally unique naming scheme (GUID), storage aware routing etc. In this demo, we use GENI resources to show that such experimental non IP features can be enabled using OpenFlow based SDNs, by writing appropriate control programs that handle them.

MobilityFirst Network API use in Mobile Applications

One of the key feature of the proposed MobilityFirst protocol stack is the service flexibility, with particular emphasis on multicasting and anycasting. In the demo we will show how this network service features could be easily exploited to enhance the capabilities of mobile applications through the use of the network API.
