     5GENI Spiral 2 is the second phase of exploratory rapid-prototyping that will begin to inform technical
     6and operational plans for the envisioned GENI suite of research infrastructure.  Spiral 2's primary goal is to begin moving towards continuous experimentation.  Key development for this period include improved ''integration'' of GENI prototypes; architecture, tools, and services enabling experiment ''instrumentation'', a movement towards ''interoperability'' across GENI prototypes, and improved approaches towards researcher ''identity management''.  All GENI projects are expected to orient their efforts to make progress towards these goals during this spiral.
     8GENi spirals last for 12 months. We expect the community’s evolving research agenda,
     9combined with insights and experience from earlier spirals, to set specific goals for future spirals.
     10GENI is being designed and prototyped by the research community, with project management and
     11system engineering provided by the GENI Project Office (GPO). After an open solicitation process and
     12extensive peer reviews, the GPO selects development teams. 
     13We expect that a large majority of these teams will continue to participate in subsequent spirals,
     14augmented by additional teams funded by later GPO solicitations. We also anticipate that other projects
     15may join the GENI prototyping effort even if not explicitly funded through GPO solicitations.
     17[SpiralOne Spiral 1]'s primary goal was to develop, integrate, and attempt to operate very rudimentary, end-to-end
     18working prototypes, as rapidly as possible, then co-evolve them with the community’s evolving
     19research vision. An early, end-to-end working prototype will greatly help the community achieve a
     20shared vision by providing a strawman example for arguments and discussions going forward.
     22Several new projects are starting in Spiral 2 to fill in several critical “missing pieces,” including: security requirements and architecture, experiment workflow tools and user interfaces, and prototypes for instrumentation and measurement.   Additional projects will build upon Spiral 1 achievements to date, including support for international and commercial federations and several early “shakedown” experiments that will prove critical in guiding system design.  Finally, we will launch two related types of campus GENI build-outs – using !OpenFlow and !WiMax technology – with significant commonality in the technologies employed, and significant overlap in the two sets of campuses. The national backbones will both be built out with !OpenFlow. In addition, Internet2 will be built out with GENI-enabled commercial routers.  Accelerating the roll-out of this rich, interoperable “meso-scale” GENI infrastructure will:[[BR]]
     23  * Create a compelling infrastructure for entirely new forms of network science and engineering experimentation at a much larger scale than has previously been available[[BR]]
     24  * Stimulate broad community participation and “opt in” by early users across 13 major campuses, which can then grow to additional campuses as the build-out progresses, with a strong partnership between researchers and campus infrastructure operators[[BR]]
     25  * Forge a strong academic / industrial base by GENI-enabling commercial equipment from Arista, Cisco, HP, Juniper, and NEC, with software from AT&T Labs and Nicira.
     27== GENI Partners ==
     28The following GENI partners are contributing world class engineering and operations expertise,
     29along with handsome donations of bandwidth across their national research networks, to GENI's
     30prototyping, trial integrations, and early operations.

     35== GENI Integration Information ==
     36The [wiki:S1IntInfo] page provides links to integration information not covered in the project pages or GPO documents.
     38== GENI Projects ==
     39Spiral 2 includes the following projects, organized by their initial control framework groups.
     41''Prototyping project staff are expected to keep the GPO appraised of progress against project milestones.  [MilestonesAndTickets This page] has hints on the mechanics of how tickets and milestones work.  If you have questions, consult your GPO system engineer.''
