NLR Powers Several Demos at GEC9

At the recent GENI Engineering Conference in Washington, DC, GEC9, NLR provided the network infrastructure for several demos, including one on 'NowCasting' by the University of Massachusetts and CASA, a NSF Engineering Research Center. NowCasting uses vast amounts of streaming data produced by geographically distributed experimental radar systems to detect in real time the shifts in weather patterns that can lead to severe weather.

OpenFlow, which uses networking capabilities from NLR, was used as a substrate for several of the plenary demos including Pathlet, SmartRE and Aster*x.
