The GENI Desktop

This demonstration will highlight several new features of the GENI Desktop including preliminary support for modules and various enhancement to make the Desktop easier to use.

We will also demonstrate new features designed to assist in running tests, including modules to generate traffic and control the flow of data across a slice.



The GENI deployment at the SoX regional provides GENI aggregate connectivity to GENI campuses in the Southeast as well as the SNAP Software Defined Exchange.



Internet2 will demo the GENI interface (via FOAM) to its Advanced Layer2 Service production network, which allows GENI experimenters to create VLANs on the Advanced Layer2 Service as part of a larger GENI experiment. We will also demonstrate our Flowspace Firewall (on a demonstration network) which is a prerequisite to allow us to have experimental OpenFlow controllers running alongside our production Advanced Layer2 Service controller.


Mid-Atlantic Crossroads (MAX)

This demonstration will show stitching between the MAX InstaGENI Rack and other GENI Resources. A review of the GENI stitching architecture and demonstration of the latest Stitching Computation Services (SCS) will also be provided. This demonstration will include provisioning across the GENI Aggregate Manager for the Internet2 ION network.

Participants from Mid-Atlantic Crossroads, University of Maryland, College Park:

Experiments and Education

MU-OSU Science DMZ

We will be presenting a demo experiment/poster for the double-ended Science DMZ infrastructure between University of Missouri-Columbia and The Ohio State University. The demo will showcase how networking policies across campuses can be securely enforced and managed when enabling accelerated long-distance data transfers for domain science collaboration use cases.



This is a combined ExoGENI/GIMI demo that will show how GIMI can be used to observe an experiment that is carried out on an ExoGENI slice. I will demonstrate the GIMI portal and its instrumentation and measurement services.


Applying Operating System Principles to SDN Controller Design

We introduce yanc, a novel controller platform for software-defined networks which exposes network configuration and state as a file system, enabling user and system applications to interact through standard file I/O, and to easily take advantage of the tools available on the host operating system. In yanc, network applications are separate processes, are provided by multiple sources, and may be written in any language. Applications benefit from common and powerful technologies such as the virtual file system (VFS) layer, which we leverage to layer a distributed file system on top of, and Linux namespaces, which we use to isolate applications with different views (e.g., slices). Effectively, we are making Linux the network operating system. Yanc currently contains a driver to communicate with OpenFlow enabled hardware but is designed to be independent of a particular SDN technology.

This is a preview/demo of a project which is going to be presented at HotNets '13 in November. We are planning on using GENI for further experimentation in this project.


Lehigh Mobility Support for Streaming Video

In this demo, we demonstrate how our content centric network supports mobility during a streaming video session.


Awesome Omni

"Awesome Omni", aka "awemni", is an experimenter friendly interface to the existing omni command line resource reservation tool.

awemni brings the existing omni suite of tools (,, together in a single tool customized to support the experimenter's workflow. awemni is intended to require little or no training because it prompts the user with customized suggestions for the next possible commands in the resource reservation workflow. awemni also supports the use of a minimal library of basic RSpecs making simple reservations trivial. awemni is currently under development.


Sea-Cloud Innovation Environment

"Sea-Cloud Innovation Environment" project is a testbed face for next generation information technology research in China. The control framework and measurement architecture in our Sea-Cloud Innovation Environment, distributed End-to-End Openflow Testbed in CSTNET and progress in cooperation with iGENI will be introduced in this demo.



Integration of Dell SDP Platform into ExoGENI will be demonstrated. In this demonstration we will explain how we established integration and what this integration brings to GENI community.


Novel IPv6 Addressing Scheme for SDN

We will present( Embedding Switch Number, Port Number, and MAC Address (ESPM) within IPv6 Address) which is a new addressing scheme that can offer easier data forwarding on the network by embedding location information inside the host address for an OpenFlow-based SDN.


InstaGENI: Demonstration of Slice Creation and Permanent File System

We will be demonstrating slice creation across the ProtoGENI and InstaGENI infrastructure, and use of the cross-GENI networked file system based in a slice. We will have two laptops and a projector, and will use the "Green Cities" demonstration for visuals.

Measurements-initiated (on GIMI) OpenFlow Flow Setup Against Ping Attacks

We will demonstrate OpenFlow flow push when a ping attack has been detected through measurements on GIMI.


Minimum Loss Resiliency for Fault-Tolerant Distributed OpenFlow-based Switches

The experiment will demonstrate resiliency to node failure in an Open Flow Switch LINC with a distributed system of switches and a buffering scheme used in an attempt to minimize the amount of packets dropped during the fail over and takeover events.


Intelligent OpenFlow Network Slicing Framework

This demo will present a directions towards the intelligent, dynamic, and predictive OpenFlow network slicing framework.


A Distributed Private Social Networking Infrastructure

We developed a distributed online social networking infrastructure to support privacy and to provide a namespace free message routing service. Our demonstration is a modification of the Diaspora open source online social network that we have modified to support global search and keyword based, tagless routing.



OpenBIDS is an attempt to develop a high performance, low memory consuming, suitable for multiple pattern matching and fast online Network Intrusion Detection System (NIDS). OpenBIDS combines inherent advantages of OpenFlow-1.0.0 and bloom filter data structure. OpenVSwitch-1.9.0 and NOX controller are used by in this NIDS.

VNode and FLARE

VNode: We demonstrate VNODE system federated with ProtoGENI. This time, we plan to demonstrate not only data-plane, but also control-plane API translation through Slice Exchange Point (SEP) and "common API" we discuss in the international federation team that GPO has organized. We also show simultaneous demos on resource allocation, transport layer, and gateway connecting VNODE (core) / FLARE (edge) to enable end-to-end Protocol-Oblivious-Fowarding (POF).

FLARE: We demonstrate FLARE Mini, a very small form factor, low-power yet high capacity (40Gbps total) , deeply programmable nodes. We show several useful applications enabled on FLARE Mini, for example, PCAP replay, Packet Generator (64B short packets @ 10Gbps), OpenFlow 1.3, L7 Switching etc.

Federation / International Projects

iGENI / Slice Around the World

We will demonstrate projects of members of the Consortium For International Advanced Networking Research using The "Slice Around The World" as a platform for Advanced Network Research and other Science Research.

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.


MySlice, the Portal Technology in FIRE Facilities

This demonstration will present the MySlice tool and its utilization as both a portal and an SFA client, for testbed federations such as OneLab in Europe. This demonstration follows the presentation made in the Tuesday morning session “Federation Tool Support”, and shows the evolution of the tool since previous GEC13 and GEC15. MySlice is an extensible tool allowing users to register and request slices, get validated by a responsible authority, and start browsing and reserving resources for their experiments. In addition to data available through SFA, MySlice also integrates measurement and monitoring data aggregated from a wide variety of data sources, and features a set of plugins allowing a user to better navigate, visualize and select the resources of interest.
