1 GENI Activity Progress Report CISE/NSF Debbie Crawford Suzi Iacono Gracie Narcho Ty Znati Acknowledgement: GPO Team, GSC Team and GENI NSF Team

2 Outline Background  The GENI Concept  The NSF’s MREFC Process  GENI Project Office Activity Progress Report Planned Activities Concluding Remarks 30 April CISE AC Meeting

3 GENI Concept …. a continental-scale internetworking “exploratorium” to support transformative research and experiments in a way that cannot be done in today’s circumscribed Internet … Sensor Network Federated International Facility Mobile Wireless Network Edge Site 30 April CISE AC Meeting

4 GENI – A Brief Background  CISE funding supported early GENI research and development activities, during  Grass-root effort for a small CISE community  Identified the need for a major facility  Development of a scientific motivation for such a facility  GENI Science Council established in March 2007  GENI: Establishing a GENI project office solicitation is released in 2006  GENI Project Office was awarded to BBN Solutions LLC in May April CISE AC Meeting

5 GENI Partnership Voice of research and education community  Scientific leadership - Science Plan  Education and Outreach Plan  Technical advisory and GPO oversight  Define user allocations process & criteria MREFC Process - Project management & execution  GENI architecture and system engineering  Cost & schedule estimates for construction  GENI facility construction plan documents NSF Program Director GENI Science Council Chair Person GENI Project Office Program Director  Working Groups 30 April CISE AC Meeting

6 MREFC Project Cycle Linear Process Conceptual Design Design Preliminary Final Design TimeConstructionOperations CDR GPO Award Period PDR FDR  Definition of the research objectives and science questions  Technical requirements needed to meet the science  Budget and contingency estimates  Initial risk analysis and mitigation strategy for construction  Carry out sufficient R&D and design to fully define the design to be built in sufficient detail to demonstrate that the Design Requirements are met and that all significant design choices are made  Carry out sufficient R&D and design to fully define the design to be built in sufficient detail to support production fabrication 6

7 GPO Award Current Funding to support preparation of the GENI design through the Final Design Review Phase  $2.5M/year for up to 4 years for establishment and administration of the GPO  Up to $10M/year for up to 4 years, for risk mitigation, including prototyping and system design engineering 30 April CISE AC Meeting

9 GPO Working Groups Substrates ( Chairs: Joe Evans, Kristin Rauschenbach; SE: John Jacob)  What technologies should be in GENI? How will they be used? What is the framework for evolution of substrate technologies? “Narrow Waist” with Federation (Chairs: Larry Peterson, John Wroclawski; SE: Aaron Falk)  What is universal across GENI components? How will evolution be accommodated with or without a full transition of all GENI nodes at once? Experiment Workflow & Services ( Chair: Jay Lepreau, Jeff Chase)  What do experimenter-users need from GENI? Consider planning, scheduling, running, debugging, analyzing experiments; long running experiments & how they grow; archiving data. User Opt-In ( Chair: Henning Schulzrinne)  How do end-users, not necessarily researchers, participate in GENI experiments? What are the various aspects including user interfaces, scheduling, debugging, measurement, archiving data, sandboxes, etc? What are the privacy and legal issues involved in user opt-in? Operations, Management and Security (Chair: Heidi Picher Dempsey)  How do operators provision, operate, manage, and trouble-shoot GENI? Includes all mechanisms for securely operating the facility, and Operations & Management costs. 30 April CISE AC Meeting

10 30 April 2015 CISE AC Meeting 10 GENI Planning and Construction Current Timeline Design PhaseConstruction PhaseOperations Phase Three to Four Years Five Years Undetermined June months FDR months 9 months PDR GENI Engineering Conferences Early 2008 CDR

11 GPO Prototyping & Experiments Funding: Goal, Needs and Structure Goal is to have multiple design and prototyping teams up to speed in GENI aspects before construction begins  Teams are expected to bid on the big construction contracts  Timely decisions are essential for successful prototyping and GENI construction risk mitigation Needs are driven by the high risk technology in GENI construction  High risks are identified at 4-month intervals by GSC / GPO review panel  GPO issues solicitations once or twice per year  Proposals are merit-reviewed by NSF-style panels  GPO continuously monitors contracts for performance Readiness reviews at the GENI Engineering Conference 30 April CISE AC Meeting

12 GENI Engineering Conferences Meetings held at regular 4-mont periods, open to all  All GPO-funded teams required to participate  Systematic, open review of each Working Group status Review of all documents, prototypes, trials, etc  Face-to-face meeting for Working Groups to meet face-to-face  Expected outcome: Prioritized list for next round of prototype funding areas Priorities are decided by GSC and GPO, with NSF First meeting October 9-11, 2007 in Minneapolis  Around 130 attendees from academia and industry University: 68, Industry: 32, International : 14, Other Organizations: 15  Discussion of proposal submission, evaluation process & criteria, funding levels  Working Group meetings and current GENI status reviews  GSC, GPO and NSF GENI current status review meeting 30 April CISE AC Meeting

13 30 April 2015 CISE AC Meeting 13 GENI Solicitation and Grant Procedures Development and prototyping awards are NOT Research Grants  Proposal must have technical merit, realism for management approach  Emphasis on concrete, near-term results with specific deliverables and associated milestones Successful proposal must show value to GENI

14 30 April 2015 CISE AC Meeting 14 Estimated Timelines Dec. 17, 2007 Monday Solicitation issues on geni.net Feb. 15, 2008 Friday Proposals due, 5 PM your local time May 15, 2008 Thursday Winners notified After contract negotiations Subcontract funds arrive

15 30 April 2015 CISE AC Meeting 15 Subcontract Types Type of Work Duration Suggested Total Value Estimated # Contracts Analyses, papers, participation in working groups 3 to 24 months Up to $30 K 25 Prototypes 12 to 24 months Up to $750 K 15 Integration Trials 24 months Up to $950 K 4

16 Concluding Remarks GENI has real risks!  GPO has identified many and proposed sound approaches to mitigate their effects on GENI construction Spiral development and Federation Systematic, formal processes to identify and drive down risks  Risk register, where any system engineer can add a risk with only the lead to retire a risk System engineers Outreach activities  Other risks are likely to emerge as prototyping and integration get underway Immediate prototyping and integration is critical GENI Eng. Conferences  Good mechanism to keep GENI momentum up, maintain focus and enable collaborations between working groups 30 April CISE AC Meeting

Conferences  Good mechanism to keep GENI momentum up, maintain focus and enable collaborations between working groups 30 April CISE AC Meeting

18 Concluding Remarks GENI is a cross-disciplinary research and engineering project  Open participation and collaboration of teams from Computer Science, Engineering, and Social, Behavioral, and Economics to enable transformative thinking Academic researchers must also collaborate with industry and other government agencies  GENI must be the “change agent” for global scale networks 30 April CISE AC Meeting
