PrimoGENI Project Status Report

Period: 2009 Q4 (October 2009 - December 2009)

I. Major accomplishments

A. Milestones achieved

We completed one milestone during this period:

  • PrimoGENI: S2.a. Initial design document: We presented the initial design document that describes how to integrate PRIME into ProtoGENI, and a detailed implementation plan for the PrimoGENI aggregate. The document has been posted on wiki.

B. Deliverables made

We are current in the middle of developing a fully-functional PrimoGENI aggregate. We expect to deliver our first full-fledged implementation in July 2010.

II. Description of work performed during last quarter

A. Activities and findings

The goal of our project is to incorporate real-time network simulation capabilities (in particular, our real-time network simulator called PRIME) into the GENI "ecosystem". In order to interact with other GENI facilities, PRIME functions as a GENI aggregate (component), so that experimenters can use a well-defined interface to remotely control and realize network experiments consisting of both physical, simulated and emulated network entities exchanging real network traffic. See PrimoGENI Aggregate 1.0 Design Document for details.

Currently, we are developing an initial prototype of the system. We expect to demonstrate the functions of the prototype at GEC 7 in March 2010.
