Topic Title Description Format Level VMs IG EG Contact
Getting Started Lab Zero: My first GENI Experiment Verify accounts and environment are set up correctly; familiarize students with the process of running an experiment on GENI (highly recommended as a first lab that students do in the class with help of an instructor) Tutorial (preferably Instructor-led) 1 2  Experimenter support, GENI Project Office
Getting Started Lab One: Understanding the AM API and Omni Understand how the GENI reservation process works, get familiar with the GENI Aggregate Manager API (GENI AM API), learn to use Omni. Tutorial (preferably Instructor-led) 1 4  Experimenter support, GENI Project Office
Getting Started GENI Desktop Basics Learn the basics of instrumenting a slice and viewing measurement data using the GENI Desktop. The GENI Desktop is used by some of the exercises listed below. Self-guided tutorial 1 2  Jay Aikat, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
Networking Basics IPv4 Routing Understand how IPv4 forwarding works and how to configure static routes Assignment 1 3  Mike Zink, University of Massachusetts, Amherst
Networking Basics TCP Congestion Control Give students experience generating and analyzing TCP flows. Students will use iperf to create a flow and view the sawtooth behavior. A second flow will then be introduced to show how TCP flows share a link. Uses the GENI Desktop to visualize flows. Assignment or 20-min in-class demo 2 2  Jay Aikat, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
Networking Basics Effect of RTT and Window Size on TCP Throughput Experiment with how RTT and TCP window size affect TCP throughput. Learn how to adjust the RTT of a TCP connection by adding delay, as well as how to adjust the window size of an iperf TCP flow. Uses the GENI Desktop to visualize flows. Assignment or 20-min in-class demo 3 2  Jay Aikat, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
Networking Basics Exploring Queues Explore the effects of queues on packet loss and delay using UDP traffic. Use iperf to send UDP traffic from a source to a destination through an intermediate bottleneck router which will develop a queue. Assignment or 15-min in-class demo 2 3  Jay Aikat, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
Networking Basics OSPF Experiment with the OSPF routing protcol, observing how it updates it's neighbor table, and how it dynamically routes around downed links. Assignment or in-class demo 1 4  Jay Aikat, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
Networking Basics Traffic Analysis Learn to use tcpdump to capture and analyze network traffic. Uses the GENI Desktop to visualize flows. Assignment 3 2  Jay Aikat, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
Networking Basics Learning Switch Implement the learning switch capability used by Ethernet switches. Develop a five-port learning switch using a software-based OpenFlow switch. Uses the LabWiki tool. Assignment 4 6 ? ?  Mike Zink, University of Massachusetts, Amherst
Advanced Networking Content Centric Networking (CCN) Run an application over a CCN protocol stack and observe how content is fetched. Optional: Use GENI Desktop to view traffic flows in the CCN Assignment 2 4  Experimenter support, GENI Project Office
Advanced Networking Network Function Virtualization: OpenFlow based Firewall Introduce NFV concepts by making an OpenFlow controlled OVS switch function as a network firewall. Much of the code for the Ryu-based controller is provided. Uses the same topology as the OpenFlow-based NAT exercise. Assignment 4 4  Experimenter support, GENI Project Office
Advanced Networking Network Function Virtualization: OpenFlow based NAT Introduce NFV concepts by making an OpenFlow controlled OVS switch function as a network firewall. Much of the code for the Ryu-based controller is provided. Uses the same topology as the OpenFlow-based Firewall exercise. Assignment 4 4  Experimenter support, GENI Project Office
Advanced Networking Traffic Generation Learn principles of traffic generation using Tmix, a tool for generating realistic network traffic Assignment or 15-min in-class demo 2 2  Jay Aikat, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
Advanced Networking OpenFlow based Load Balancing Router Implement of a load balancer using OpenFlow switches (OVS switches) and a controller capable of collecting flow stats. The exercise includes a template for a Treme-Based controller; only a few methods need to implemented to get the required functionality. Uses the LabWiki tool. The 7 VMs include a VM for the OpenFlow controller. Assignment 4 7 ? ?  Mike Zink, University of Massachusetts, Amherst
Advanced Networking Adaptive video policies for DASH video Explores the tradeoff between different metrics of video quality (average rate, interruptions, and variability of rate) in an adaptive video delivery system. This exercise is a good starting point for having students design, implement, and test their own adaptive video policies. Self-guided tutorial 4 2 ? ?  Fraida Fund, NYU
Advanced Networking Two queues or not two queues? The benefit of statistical multiplexing Reproduces a classic result in queueing theory, statistical multiplexing gain in queues. It answers the basic question: is it faster to serve a set of requests with one fast server, or many slower servers? Self-guided tutorial 1 5 ? ?  Fraida Fund, NYU
Advanced Networking Average length of an M/M/1 queue This experiment reproduces a classic result in queueing theory: the length of the M/M/1 queue as its utilization approaches 100%. Note this experiment can take a long time, running overnight without user intervention. Self-guided tutorial 1 3  Fraida Fund, NYU
Distributed Systems Web Server Get hands-on experience installing and interacting with a web server. Assignment 1 2  Jay Aikat, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
Distributed Systems VLC/Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP Give students a better understanding of how Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over Http (DASH) works. It builds on the "Load Balancing Router" exercise and uses the same topology. VLC parameters such as VLC decision bit rate (actual measured bit rate), VLC empirical rate (instant measured throughput) are measured and displayed using GIMI tools. The 7 VMs include an OpenFlow controller. Assignment 4 7 ? ?  Mike Zink, University of Massachusetts, Amherst
Distributed Systems Bitcoin: reaching consensus in distributed systems Explores the problem of consensus in distributed systems in the context of Bitcoin, a distributed currency. Self-guided tutorial or demo 1 5  Fraida Fund, NYU
