GENI International Collaborations


A growing number of projects involve collaborations, connectivity, and resources outside of the United States. This page collects summaries and pointers to information on those projects.

Project Listing

GpENI: Great Plains Enviornment for Network Innovation

ThumbImage(GpENI-World-topo.png, thumb=1000)?

GpENI (supplemented by MMO-GpENI) is expanding the scope of the Midwest regional optical backbone to an International programmable network infrastructure. Approximatly 40 node clusters are coming up in 18 nations; the UK and Switzerland are currently operational. MMO-GpENI will analyze development and prototyping requirements in a federated international network. Specifically, the team will work with collaborators in Europe to determine how they can use existing international research and education infrastructure (e.g. DANTE, NORDUnet) to affiliate with GENI clusters, contribute resources and software, and run early GENI experiments. The team will coordinate with other funded GENI federation projects to keep the requirements results consistent with those projects.

iGENI: A Distributed Network Research Infrastructure for the Global Environment for Network Innovation

The iGENI infrastructure will connect existing resources with iCAIR involvement (e.g. StarLight?) with current GENI backbone transport resources (e.g., Internet2 and NLR layer 2/Ethernet VLANs); current and planned GENI regional transport resources (e.g., BEN, CENIC, and others ); and additional available connections to other research networks (e.g. FIRE).


K-GENI: Establishment of Operational Linkage between GENI and ETRI/KISTI-Korea for International Federation

This effort will support early trial linkage of research network operators as part of understanding management of a global-scale, federated infrastructure suite that can support GENI. GMOC engineers and ETRI/KISTI engineers will use a donated 1 Gbps international connection between Korea and Indiana University to test methods of interoperability between GMOC and the dvNOC system. The dvNOC is being developed as a part of the GLORIAD-KR project funded by Korean government and is in use by ETRI/KISTI. Examples would include testing a data stream of “externally significant” operational data between GMOC and dvNOC, including things like outage information and maintenance notification.


Understanding Federation

This effort will integrate PlanetLab (PLC), PlanetLab Europe (PLE), PlanetLab Japan (PLJ)-along with other testbeds in Korea, Brazil, Europe, Japan, and the US-into an international federated research infrastructure. We will deploy and use the federation mechanisms developed as part of the PlanetLab cluster currently funded by the GPO, and focus our attention on the policy issues that arise when autonomous organizations federate their networks together. Funding is requested for Princeton (the prime) along with Université Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC) and the University of Tokyo (subcontractors), which will drive the effort, but multiple testbeds will be federated with the support of this proposal. The effort will focus on resolving the policy issues related to federation-Princeton, UPMC, and the University of Tokyo already have funding to perform the necessary engineering work to build the mechanisms required by federation.


PrimoGENI – Developing GENI Aggregates for Real-Time Large-Scale Network Simulation

In addition to deploying and supporting the prototype network simulator service and tools, the project will also facilitate connections between the GENI resources and geographically distributed computational nodes located in Miami at FIU and in Brazil.
