    5     GENI Spiral 3 is the third phase of exploratory rapid-prototyping that is defining GENI’s technical and operational plans.  Spiral 3’s primary goal is on supporting experimenter use of GENI infrastructure, including growing the resources available for use and making them easier for experimenters to acquire, connect, and configure.  Work in Spiral 3 should improve the integration, operations, tools, and documentation of GENI prototypes to lower the barriers of use.  In general, encouraging and supporting experimental use should take priority over adding additional new capabilities.  Software development for this period will focus on implementation of common APIs, integration with the GENI Meta-Operations Center, definition of an instrumentation and measurement architecture and implementing interoperable approaches to resource description, authorization, and network stitching.  The GENI ‘’Meso-scale deployment’’ projects are in their second year and will continue their efforts to deploy, integrate, and begin operations of OpenFlow switches and WiMax base stations on several university campuses.

    67    GENI spirals last for 12 months. We expect the community’s evolving research agenda, combined with insights and experience from earlier spirals, to set specific goals for future spirals. GENI is being designed and prototyped by the research community, with project management and system engineering provided by the GENI Project Office (GPO). After an open solicitation process and extensive peer reviews, the GPO selects development teams.   We expect that a large majority of these teams will continue to participate in subsequent spirals, augmented by additional teams funded by later GPO solicitations. We also anticipate that other projects may join the GENI prototyping effort even if not explicitly funded through GPO solicitations.
