BGP Multiplexer

Demo Participants: Vytautas Valancius, Nick Feamster, Jennifer Rexford, and Akihiro Nakao
BGP-Mux is a system that enables wide-area route control for networks inside GENI. BGP-Mux allows scarce resources, such as IP prefixes and AS numbers, to be shared among experimental virtual networks. This demo will showcase the automated management of such resources.

Cognitive Radio

Demo Participants: Ivan Seskar, Peter Wolniansky, Dirk Grunwald
Demo cognitive radio platform doing spectrum sensing

Data-Intensive Cloud Control for GENI: Processing Weather Radar Data on Amazon EC2

Demo Participant: Emmanuel Cecchet
This demo will show how Orca can be used to manage Amazon Web Services (AWS) resources including servers (EC2) and storage (S3). Data from a weather radar will be uploaded to S3 and processed by an EC2 server to produce images. A limited budget of AWS resources will be allocated and the processing will stop as soon as the budget limit has been reached. This will showcase the DiCloud? proxy aggregate manager for Orca.

GENI Pathlets

Demo Participants: Mark Berman, Brighten Godfrey
Source-controlled routing is a promising architectural approach to improve reliability, efficiency, and overall flexibility of the network. We will demonstrate a streaming media application weathering "storms" on the network via source-controlled adaptive routing, running on top of pathlet routing, a flexible interdomain routing and forwarding substrate.

GENI NetServ

Demo Participants: Jan Janak, Mark Berman
We present NetServ, an extensible platform for deploying in-network services. NetServ-enabled network nodes provide a common execution environment, where network services implemented as modules can be dynamically installed and removed. Our demonstration shows how NetServ can help solve some of the issues faced by content and real-time service providers. We show how NetServ-enabled nodes can help content providers disseminate content and how providers of real-time services, such as voice and video calls, can use NetServ-enabled nodes to make their systems more scalable and reliable. GENI allows us to deploy NetServ?-enabled nodes in the network.


Demo Participants: Pradeep Padala, Dongyan Xu
We will show how VIOLIN ( can be used for suspending and resuming GENI experiments. This project is part of the GENI-alpha demos planned for GEC9. Our demo will show starting an Emulab experiment, suspending it, and resuming it from a checkpoint. The suspend/resume feature can be used for various purposes including fault tolerance, resource management, and debugging. GMOC Meta-Operations Center


iGENI Distributed Network Research Infrastructure

Demo Participant: Joe Mambretti
The iGENI dynamic provisioning demonstration will showcase capabilities for large scale (national) multiple domain dynamic L1/L2 path provisioing involving multiple sites, using specialized signaling and implementation techniques.

Kansei Wireless Sensor Networks

Demo Participant:Wenjie Zeng
The KanseiGenie team will demonstrate its capability of data plane stitching, in addition to its demonstrated control plane stitching capability, on two federated sensor network testbeds, the Kansei testbed located the Ohio State University and the NetEye testbed located at the Wayne State University. Near real-time round-trip delay between the two sites will be measured, collected, and visualized. K-GENI Operational Linkage between GENI and ETRI/KISTI-Korea for International Federation

LAMP Leveraging and Abstracting Measurements with perfSONAR

Demo Participants: Ezra Kissel,Martin Swany, Guilherme Fernandes
perfSONAR is an established framework that enables network performance information to be gathered and exchanged in a multi-domain, federated environment. Leveraging and Abstracting Measurements with perfSONAR (LAMP) is a project to create an instrumentation and measurement (I&M) system, based on perfSONAR, for use by experimenters on GENI. This demo will present the current status of the LAMP I&M system by demonstrating its use on ProtoGENI. Demonstrate monitoring of a running experiment.

LEARN Programmable Measurements over Texas-based Research Network

Demo Participant: Deniz Gurkan
Milestone S2.d: Complete initial integration of the LEARN network into the ORCA control framework (GENI Cluster D), to enable GENI researchers to utilize the LEARN network for L2 (VLAN) transport between a limited number of sites, e.g., University of Houston and Rice University. (7/20/10, GEC8)

netKarma GENI Provenance Registry

Demo Participant: Chris Small
NetKarma: a provenance registry to capture the metadeta describing the experiment conditions, time ordering, and relationships within the experiment and across the experiment and infrastructure layer

OpenFlow at Clemson University: OF Management and Inter-Campus Access Control

Demo Participant: Kuang-Ching Wang
The demo will consists of three parts:

  1. Campus Ethernet deployment and user management process.
  2. Inter-campus access control demo jointly with GT OpenFlow team.
  3. OpenFlow operation on wireless mesh network.

OpenFlow at Georgia Tech: RESONANCE Access Control

Demo Participants: Russell Clark, Nick Feamster
We will demonstrate a network policy management system including network access control for wired and wireless users.

  • RESONANCE - an OpenFlow Network Access Control for campus users
  • Inter-campus access control demo jointly with Georgia Tech and Clemson University

OpenFlow at Indiana University

Demo Participant: Chris Small Demonstration of the deployment of OpenFlow in the IU campus network and connectivity to backbone and other campus networks. The demonstration will also highlight tools used to monitor and manage OpenFlow networks

OpenFlow at Stanford: Packet and Circuit Convergence

Demo Participants: Saurav Das, Yiannis Yiakoumis
Packet and Circuit switched networks are typically planned, operated and managed separately, leading to substantial management overhead, functionality & resource duplication, and increased Capex & Opex. We propose and demonstrate a converged network, where OpenFlow is used to control both switching technologies in a common way, allowing the service provider maximum flexibility in using the correct mix of technologies while designing and operating their networks. Specifically, we will demonstrate how circuit flow properties (guaranteed bandwidth and delay, no jitter, bandwidth-on-demand) can be used to provide differential treatment to different types of aggregated packet flows - voice, video and web traffic.

OpenFlow at Stanford: Expedia

Demo Participant: Jad Naous
The Expedient Demo will show how we can reserve a slice across several sites running various aggregates. Expedient will show slice reservations across resources traditionally associated with GENI such as PlanetLab and OpenFlow and across resources outside the GENI sphere such as EC2.

OpenFlow at Stanford: Aster*x

Demo Participant: Nikhi Handigol
Effective load-balancing systems for services hosted in unstructured networks need to take into account both the congestion of the network and the load on the servers. In this demonstration, we illustrate a comprehensive load-balancing solution that works well for such networks. The system we showcase, called Aster*x, tries to minimize response time by controlling the load on the network and the servers using customized flow routing. The demonstration shows how Aster*x works over a combined network and computation slice spanning multiple campuses across the country. Besides the base behavior, we show the effect of dynamically adding and removing computing resources to the system, increasing the request arrival rate, altering the CPU or network load of each request, and changing load-balancing algorithms.
