GENI Goes Global

At this week’s 9th Annual LambdaGrid Workshop held in Korea, a consortium of network researchers announced that they received a three-year grant from the U.S. Global Environment for Network Innovations (GENI) program, which NLR supports with Layer 2/Layer 3 services, to develop a major new national and international distributed infrastructure called “iGENI,” the “International GENI.”

Led by the International Center for Advanced Internet Research (iCAIR) at Northwestern University, the consortium includes the Electronic Visualization Laboratory (EVL) at the University of Illinois at Chicago; the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2) at the University of California, San Diego; Cisco Systems, Inc.; and, the BBN Technologies GENI Program Office (GPO). This project is funded by NSF through BBN Technologies to enable research at the frontiers of network science and engineering.
