2 Initiative Overview Nick Maynard November 3, 2011

3 Accelerating Development of Next- Gen Applications PROBLEM: We have a chicken and egg problem in next-gen capacity and applications. – Demand for high-speed broadband from consumers and small businesses is limited without next-gen applications. – Software developers have continued to engineer their apps to run over low-bandwidth broadband services. – Without a critical mass of end-users demanding higher bandwidth, supply of next-gen capacity has remained limited. 3

4 Accelerating Development of Next- Gen Applications SOLUTION: US Ignite will promote US leadership in development of applications and services for ultra-fast networks This initiative will foster the creation of novel applications that have the potential to transform national priority areas, such as: – Healthcare – Education – Public safety – Energy – Advanced manufacturing 4

5 Actions – Link together ultra-high-capacity, low-latency networks of sufficient scale to support meaningful experimentation by researchers and entrepreneurs – Facilitate research, experimentation, and entrepreneurship using this network of networks – Make the best applications available for public benefit or commercial use through the support of US I gnite partners and funders – Disseminate lessons learned 5

6 Combining Industry, Agencies and Academia US Ignite Partnership will work with NSF, the White House OSTP, GENI, and leading technology and telecom companies Allows startups and students the same opportunity as industry and researchers to develop and deploy next-gen apps Funders and partners will have the opportunity to take an active role in developing and growing good ideas developed by US Ignite efforts 6

7 No New Infrastructure Construction Will stitch together islands of high-bandwidth connectivity across the country to create a nationwide high-bandwidth test-bed Communities that have agreed to participate all have at least 100 Mbps symmetrical service 7

8 Kickoff Event – Winter 2011 White House event announcing the project partners, test-bed deployment, and long-term vision Participants will include: – High-level White House officials – US Ignite non-profit – Communities – For-profit and non-profit partners – Federal agencies Event will highlight current efforts while driving the interest of additional communities and partners 8

19 Non-profit Partnership William Wallace October 2011

20 Part 1: Spur the development of new applications designed for advanced-technology networks NSF will fund and support Gigabit research: – Partner with mission agencies in areas of national priority – Establish criteria to ensure new applications and digital experiences have the potential to transform focus sectors – Ensure test bed access to entrepreneurs, students, researchers – Run application development prize competitions US Ignite Partnership will mentor application developers: – Help establish priorities for scope and mix of competitions – Foster online collaboration and resource sharing among user and developer communities – Facilitate new, innovative business model testing – Provide entrepreneurship training and funding 20

21 Part 1: Leveraging the unique capabilities of next- generation networks 100 Mbps+ and low latency Post-IP protocols (layer 2) and OpenFlow GENI-enabled network capabilities Integrated with wireless networks Apps built to be open, shared, and extendable 21

22 Part 1: Coordinating multiple development approaches NSF has funded Mozilla Open Innovation Challenges: – Peer-based learning and exchange through structured workshops – Iterative application development with continued support contingent on results – Narrowing and launch within target sectors to build scale – Process facilitated by Mozillas experience and access to 400,000-member developer network US Ignite Partnership will grow application prize competitions: – Balanced mix of competitions across sectors – Balanced mix of competition sponsors – Award criteria designed to ensure high impact, scalability, use of network capabilities 22

23 Part 2: Maximize potential of national testbed network Assist GENI in expansion of national testbed network: – Stitch together campuses and islands of advanced technology infrastructure – Peer communities that have already deployed 100Mbps or more symmetrical service to consumers, SMBs, anchors – Serve as clearing house for in-kind network contributions Share best practices: – Compile lessons for infrastructure deployment, service creation and delivery, application development, and R&D – Curate and post online materials donated by partners/experts – Convene in-person forums 23

24 Part 3: Review, evaluate, ensure high-impact applications Review results of application contests and grant programs: – Develop metrics for evaluating adoption, usage, and success of apps – Conduct post-award panel reviews of progress and mentoring sessions – Evaluate strategies for further development of winning technologies Develop strategies to distribute and/or commercialize technology: Academic institution funding as a research project Further government funding as a public benefit or service Spin-out of technology with US Ignite encouragement, support, and fundraising – US Ignite Partnership board members, funders, and partners receive early exposure 24

27 GENIUS Ignite! StatusRenewal from NSF for 3 to 4 more yearsNot funded yet; USG is building an initiative with a not-for-profit partnership Ignite Team GoalsResearch Infrastructure for transformative science & engineering Jumpstart gigabit application development; glue together islands of broadband; stand up a Public Private Partnership ConstituenciesUniversity faculty, researchers and studentsResearchers, entrepreneurs, cities, anchor institutions all US citizens Current ActivitiesPhase 2 Prototyping: Meso-scale build-out; Campus integration; GENI-enabling campuses; GECs; first set of experiments running; GENI used in class rooms Initial Planning: Workshops; Technical and economic feasibility; Planning meetings; Potential partner telephone calls Next Up4 th D&P spiral: GENI racks; scaling up # of campuses and # of experiments; do intensive marketing 3 rd Ignite Workshop starts this afternoon; 1 st Ignite Poster Session; 1 st set of teams doing gigabit apps for national priorities will be funded this fall/winter; Mozilla has been funded to carry out competitions/prizes – announcement soon Long Term Success campuses GENI enabled and connected; Rich, widely-used national experimental R&E network 200 (same) campuses and 200 cities GENI- enabled; experiments everywhere; innovation everywhere Role of CampusCentral playerA partner in an ecosystem – part of the set of anchor institutions where people are part of the loop GENI Ignite CombinationGlue for Ignite!

29 Next Generation Applications How to jumpstart development? Call for unsolicited proposals for next generation applications (directions to follow) – Holding the 3 rd Ignite workshop starting today to shape projects – OPEN TO EVERYONE – Focus on traditional NSF PI community; regular proposals to NSF – Fund 3 to 6 this fall after merit review – A second call in the spring; fund 3 to 6 more this year Prizes for next generation applications – Mozilla will host the platform – Non-traditional community from NSF perspective – Ideation plus prototype development prizes 29

30 Application Teams are Encouraged to Live the Future Today Applications – In areas of national priority – Must show direct benefit to some segment of society; application has to run somewhere and be used by people – Leverages advances in next generation technologies Teams – Looking for people with great ideas – Developers who can turn ideas into next generation applications – Infrastructure providers – Anchor institutions willing to be living labs – Evaluation experts 30
