Five Years of Research on GENI: From the Future Internet Back to the Present
by Brighten Godfrey, University of Illinois
Abstract: Over the last five years, GENI has provided an important platform for wide-area network experimentation. In this talk, I'll describe my group's research over the last five years that has utilized the GENI infrastructure to enable a breadth of experiments – spanning future Internet architecture, a new design for consistently high performance data transport, and network verification. These projects took advantage of GENI's compute resources, dedicated wide-area backbone, and SDN programmability.
