Future Internet Research and Experiments EU vs USA 7 June, 2012 Róbert Szabó Dept. of Telecommunications and Media Informatics Budapest University of Technology and Economics
Agenda My personal interpretation of the Open Platforms for Innovation session at FIA Aalborg Robert Szabo (BME-TMIT) 2
Programs EU FI – PPP USA GENI IGNITE Robert Szabo (BME-TMIT) 3
FI – PPP (EU) Industry driven initiative set to build an open Future Internet network and service platform Platform instances validation in large scale real-life trials Broad-based collection of Future Internet technical requirements Identification of legal, regulatory and standardization requirements Modeling novel business models and value networks New methods and tools to engage SMEs and foster entrepreneurship Explorative funding instrument to do research create communities Robert Szabo (BME-TMIT) 4 Source: Dr. Petra Turkama, Aalto University, CONCORD CSA
GENI – Infrastructure (USA) GENI is a virtual laboratory for exploring future internets at scale GENI opens up huge new opportunities Leading-edge research in next-generation internets Rapid innovation in novel, large-scale applications Source: Chip Elliott, GENI Project Director Exploring Networks of the Future The start of GENI campus expansion CAMPUS!!!
EU vs US Universities and Campuses Vs. Robert Szabo (BME-TMIT) 6 Source: Dr. Petra Turkama, Aalto University, CONCORD CSA
How to Sponsor the Industry? EU Direct involvement USA By orders from the programs The research community decides what to use what to order E.g., Open Flow enabled switches and routers Robert Szabo (BME-TMIT) 7 (incentives)
GENI architecture Flexible network / cloud research infrastructure Also suitable for physics, genomics, other domain science Support hybrid circuit model plus much more (OpenFlow) Distributed cloud (racks) for content caching, acceleration, etc. Metro Research Backbones Internet ISP Regional Networks Campus g g g Legend GENI-enabled hardware Layer 3 Control Plane Layer 2 Data Plane Source: Chip Elliott, GENI Project Director
GENI at scale Suggest US campuses as target for at scale Both academia and national labs GENI-enable the campuses Their students, faculty, staff can then live in the future using both todays Internet and many experiments Build out backbones, regionals, and shared clouds to support the campuses Source: Chip Elliott, GENI Project Director
At scale GENI prototype Enabling at scale experiments How can we afford / build GENI at sufficient scale? Clearly infeasible to build research testbed as big as the Internet Therefore we are GENI-enabling testbeds, commercial equipment, campuses, regional and backbone networks Students are early adopters / participants in at-scale experiments Key strategy for building an at-scale suite of infrastructure GENI-enabled campuses, students as early adopters HP ProCurve 5400 Switch NEC WiMAX Base Station GENI-enabled equipment Source: Chip Elliott, GENI Project Director
US IGNITE Science: Advances in networking and systems research will be enabled through experimentation and explorations at scale on unique network infrastructure. Innovation: Leveraging previous NSF-investments in the GENI network will allow use of an open testbed available across the globe for experiments in future networks; will enable deployment and evaluation of gigabit applications that were previously not possible. Societal Benefit: Applications in national priority areas (e.g., health and wellbeing, emergency preparedness, advanced manufacturing, energy, education and workforce development, transportation) may have profound, long-term social and economic impacts.

Research Infrastructure for Computer Scientists Testbed for Next-Gen Applications Future commercial offerings CS Experiments Experimental Usage and Demonstrations Pre-commercial Applications Regional and backbone networks Campus and Lab Applied Research Campus networksMunicipal and commercial networks App creation teams GENI members, policies, … US Ignite participants, policies, … GENI technology federation Service creators Commercial Applications GENI US Ignite Initiative CS Research US Ignite is now taking shape Bridging CS Experiments to Next-Gen Applications in Cities
Existing ISP connects Layer 2 Ignite Connect (1 GE or 10GE) Layer 3 GENI control plane Layer 2 connect to subscribers Existing head-end New GENI / Ignite rack pair OpenFlow switch(es) Flowvisor Remote management Instrumentation Aggregate manager Measurement Programmable PCs Storage Video switch (opt) Home Most equipment not shown IGNITE Arch Proposal
FI PPP First Year Achivements Negotiation and implementation of FI PPP Collaboration Agreement and Governance structures Selection of Advisory Board Release the first set of requirements Release the first platform instances Cross-project collaborations in Working Groups and workshops Identification of potential test beds for experimentation Promotion of FI PPP in various forums and communities Building links and finding synergies with related initiatives Robert Szabo (BME-TMIT) 15 ???
Conclusions Support research at Universities and Research Labs Support experiments at campuses Go large scale and open Let the industry find profitable business in the above Robert Szabo (BME-TMIT) 16
