The evening demo session gives GENI experimenters and developers 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 requested demonstrations categorized in broad interest groups. You can download project posters and supplemental information from attachments listed at the bottom of this page.

GENI Cinema

This demo shows how SDN can be used to implement a live video streaming service for streaming and switching between classroom lectures.

Video streaming over the Internet, be it static or live streaming, is rapidly increasing in popularity. Many video streaming services exist to serve a variety of needs, such as video conferencing, entertainment, education, and the broadcast of live events. These services rely heavily on the server application to adapt to increasing and decreasing demand for a particular video resource. Furthermore, they require the reallocation of resources and the restart of the stream when a client stops, starts, and/or switches to a different stream. SDN and specifically OpenFlow can be creatively used to reallocate some of these tasks to the network and link layers.

Our goal is to provide a scalable service for GENI using OpenFlow that supports the broadcast of live video streams from an arbitrary number of video-producers to an arbitrary number of video-consumers, where video- consumers can change “channels” without disrupting their existing stream and without affecting the load on a particular video stream source.

GENI Desktop

This demo shows a unified interface for accessing GENI resources and managing GENI experiments.

The GENI Desktop provides a unified interface and environment for experimenters to create, control, manage, interact with and measure the performance of GENI slices. We will demonstrate the newly implemented command line interface of the GENI Desktop to control, manage and measure the performance of GENI slices. In addition, we will demo new features implemented as a part of the Adopt-A-GENI (AAG) project.


Network and Service Providers

Prototype of a ChoiceNet Economy Plane for the Future Internet Architecture

This demo shows a working prototype of complete end-to-end interaction of the ChoiceNet entities within an economy plane.

In this prototype we will demonstrate the ChoiceNet message interactions between the three main entities which comprise a ChoiceNet framework: Marketplace, multiple Providers, and Customers. This prototype offers consumers the opportunity to 'choose' from a variety of service offerings. Competition between providers encourage innovative and superior services, which ultimately benefits the customers.


SDN-based Flow Scheduling in Heterogeneous Wireless Networks

This demo shows a working prototype of a flow scheduling system in heterogeneous wireless networks.

In this paper, we will show how to exploit SDN to monitor flow statistics in a heterogeneous wireless network environment and how to enforce flow scheduling decisions through SDN. Heterogeneous wireless has been more and more common recently. However, these networks are utilized separately currently. This works try to optimize the overall utilization of these networks through SDN.


ExoGENI / Science Shakedown

This demo show recent work on GENI Science Shakedown


Distributed Iceberg detection using OpenFlow

Shakedown Experimentation on Scalable, Agile, Robust, and Secure Multi-Domain Software Defined Networks. Demo shows Software-Defined-Networking (SDN) based traffic measurements and inference paradigm for detecting global icebergs and distributed anomalies.

Accurate and timely traffic matrix (TM) measurements provide essential inputs for today’s various network operations. In this demo, we evaluate our traffic measurement paradigm in an OpenFlow-based networks with multiple SDN switches. Our framework will collaboratively use the distributed measurement resources and employ iSTAMP on multiple OpenFlow switches to detect distributed iceberg.


ToMaTo on CloudLab

This demo shows the ToMaTo network testbed running on CloudLab infrastructure.

The ToMaTo ( is a network testbed which enables researchers to run their experiment on a specifically designed virtual networking topologies. The ToMaTo consists of a backend which controls multiple ToMaTo hosts and a front-end which allows users to edit and manage their experiment from their browser.

ToMaTo hosts provide virtualization technology and a complete toolset for more advanced experiments. The hosts run ToMaTo software package on existing operating system but installing the software needs bare metal machines and cannot be run in a virtualized environment.

Therefore, CloudLab which provides bare metal machines is suitable for running and scaling ToMaTo hosts infrastructure. The demo will show how ToMaTo hosts are provisioned on demand and runs on CloudLab infrastructure.


ARRCN Self-Organized Cloud Platform

This demo shows a working prototype of the cloud orchestration platform with VNF use-case demonstration.

Attendees interested in cloud computing, DC, NFV, SND, network visualization and OpenStack should see this demo.



Symbiotic Evolution of CAV Applications and Networks

This poster shows how a working platform and the technologies of vehicular sensing and control (VSC) designed for enabling high-fidelity, at scale evaluation of protocols in vehicular networking. Visit us if you are interested in VSC networking and its real-world application
