GEC 18 Evening Demo Session



Sunday October 27, 2013

Session Leaders

Heidi Picher Dempsey
GENI Project Office


The evening demo session gives new and existing GENI experimenters and projects a chance to share their work in a live network environment. Demonstrations run for the entire length of the session, with teams on hand to answer questions and collaborate. This page lists scheduled demonstrations categorized in broad interest groups.

GENI Infrastructure and Measurement Projects


Demonstrate latest capabilities of ExoGENI: storage slivering, any-to-any VLAN connectivity across the world between racks using multiple providers, multipoint connectivity across multiple providers.


  • Ilya Baldin, RENCI, Ilia Baldine

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.


Security and Data Exchange Projects

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.


Wireless Projects

WiMAX @ NYU Poly

At GEC18, some of our undergraduate and high school research assistants will demonstrate projects they have been working on utilizing GENI WiMAX, including a pervasive gaming application, a new technique for video delivery over wireless networks, and research on wireless signal propagation in urban environments.


  • Various undergrad and high school students. NYU Poly Contact Fraida Fund - Fraida Fund

Handover Solutions in WiMAX

The Clemson/Madison team will demonstrate a vertical handoff technique using OpenFlow.


Location Based Messaging System in MobilityFirst FIA

Global Unique Identifiers (GUIDs) used in the MobilityFirst Future Internet Architecture can be used to address different classes of Internet objects, from devices to contents, from services to context. In this demo we will showcase how location GUIDs can be exploited to realize a location based messaging system deployed on Android phones connected both through WiFi and WiMax. More information on MobilityFirst FIA project can be found at


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.
