1 US I GNITE A MERICA ’ S N ETWORK FOR N EXT - GEN A PPLICATIONS OSTP/NSF Update March 2011

2 US I GNITE O VERVIEW We need to create a research and commercial environment in the U.S. where new applications for advanced networks can flourish. Achieving this will require the combined resources of industry, government, and academia. We propose forming a public private partnership whose mission is to make the U.S. the world leader in applications and services for advanced broadband networks. The principal goals include: Assist the commercial market to reach sufficient scale to support commercial applications that take advantage of next- gen broadband networks. Advance application and service R&D, focusing on national priority areas such as job creation, health care, energy, public safety and education. Disseminate valuable lessons learned to communities, industry, universities, and agencies. 2

3 W IRELESS I NNOVATION AND I NFRASTRUCTURE I NITIATIVE (WI3) Called for by the President in the State of the Union and announced in Marquette, MI Promise to the Nation High speed wireless coverage to 98% of Americans in 5 years Catalyze Innovation through a Wireless Innovation (WIN) Fund Funded by spectrum auction revenues $3B total with $1B going to NSF for research and testing The WIN Fund will support basic research, experimentation and testbeds Also support applied development in public safety, education, energy, health, transportation, and economic development.

4 U PDATE ON CURRENT EFFORTS NSF/BBN have been working with cities to deploy necessary infrastructure to GENI-enable these existing fiber networks. This includes sending technical teams to each city to assess existing networking assets: Chattanooga, TN Cleveland, OH Lafayette, LA Philadelphia, PA Salt Lake City region, UT Washington, DC NSF will be hosting application workshops in May and June These are preparation for an FY11 RFP process to support applications that will be developed and deployed over the network to the GENI-enabled cities One-on-one conversations with 40+ companies, agencies, and non- profits about the partnership and next steps 4

9 G OAL 1 : C ONNECTING THE US I GNITE NATIONAL NETWORK AND COMMUNITY 9 National network Peer communities that have already deployed 100Mbps symmetrical service to consumer and small business users Leverage existing high- speed networks connecting research institutions and enterprises Key partners : academic networks, long-haul carriers, regional networks Sharing best practices Lessons learned for infrastructure deployment, service creation and delivery, application development, and R&D Online materials donated by partners and maintained by the partnership National network of experts available to offer in-depth support to communities In-person forums

10 G OAL 2: C REATING HIGHLY INNOVATIVE GIGABIT APPLICATIONS 10 Research Connect communities to NSF GENI research network Connect research institutions on the GENI network to these communities Enable researchers to run novel apps over the network Upgrade capacity available to university students and researchers on GENI campuses and those universities within the communities Run contests targeting researchers for innovative networking and application design Key partners : NSF, GENI, universities Commercial test-bed Foster online collaboration and resource sharing among user and developer communities Business model testing Entrepreneurship training and funding to support application startups and spinoffs created through this program Key partners : vendors, communities, non-profits

11 G OAL 3: P ERMANENT US I GNITE PARTNERSHIP ORGANIZATION Support a coordinating body that will ensure the long-term viability of the partnership Chaired by a “broadband visionary” 1-2 FTE within an existing non-profit organization Coordinate program funding, monitoring, evaluation Operational funding for activities does not flow through this central organization Overhead covered by minimal membership fees paid by each partner organization Key partners : Non-profit organization with existing broadband programs and experience working with tech industry and academics 11

12 K ICKOFF EVENT – S EPTEMBER 2011 White House event announcing the project partners, existing network, and long-term vision Participants could include: High-level administration officials Chair of organizing non-profit Communities For-profit and non-profit partners Key supporting agencies Event would raise the profile of the gigabit applications generally and the partnership specifically while driving the interest of additional communities and private sector partners 12

13 P ARTNERSHIP ROLLOUT TIMELINE March and April – Follow up conference call with all partners – Revise priorities and next steps – Identify gaps in partners, approach, technical capabilities – Agree on goals for initiative May – DC workshop on applications – Agree on organizational structure June – Cleveland workshop on applications – NSF RFP process kicks off – White House meeting for partner companies, non-profits and agencies July – Agree on network deployment timeline September – White House event with all partners 13
