This proposal will deploy GENI-enabled commercial routers into the ProtoGENI backbone, develop S/W to enable per- slice monitoring and measurement, and develop tools and interfaces to control and access the measurement infrastructure. This proposal leverages measurement software developed at AT&T Research and combines it with measurement software developed at the University of Kentucky

Current Capabilities

Brief descriptions of resources/functions/tools that are available to anyone in the GENI community
