"GENI - Global Environment for Network Innovations"

 

Abstract

 

The Global Environment for Network Innovations (GENI) is a suite of research infrastructure components rapidly taking shape in prototype form across the US. It is sponsored
by the US National Science Foundation, with the goal of becoming the world's first laboratory environment for exploring future Internets at scale, promoting innovations in network science, security, technologies, services, and applications.


GENI allows academic and industrial researchers to perform a new class of experiments that tackle critically important issues in global communications networks such as (a) Science issues: we cannot currently understand or predict the behavior of complex, large-scale networks, (b) Innovation issues: we face substantial barriers to at-scale experimentation with new architectures, services, and technologies (c) Society issues: we increasingly rely on the Internet but are unsure that can we trust its security, privacy or resilience GENI is enabling researchers to explore these issues by running large-scale, well-instrumented, end-to-end experiments engaging substantial numbers of real users. These experiments may be fully compatible with today's Internet, variations or improvements on today's Internet protocols, or indeed radically novel, clean slate designs. The GENI project is now supporting such experiments across a mesoscale build-out through more than a dozen US campuses, two national backbones, and several regional networks. If this effort proves successful, it will provide a path toward more substantial build-out.


In this keynote presentation, she will introduce GENI through a couple of example use-cases, she will review the growing suite of infrastructure and evolving control framework. She will also present previous and current experiments running in GENI.

 

 

Speaker Bio

 

Niky Riga is a Network Scientist at Raytheon BBN Technologies. Niky joined the GENI Project Office (GPO) in March 2010. As a member of GPO, Niky is responsible for supporting GENI experimenters in integrating and deploying their experiments as well as advocating their requirements to the rest of the GENI community.

 

Before joining the GPO, Niky worked on multiple innovative projects within the Network Research department of BBN. Her focus is on designing and prototyping pioneering transport services for Mobile Ad-hoc Networks, while her main goal is making innovative, research ideas practical and implementing them on real systems. She has successfully led various integration efforts. Niky earned a Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens, and an MS degree in Computer Science at Boston University.
