Session Abstract

GENI, the Global Environment for Network Innovation is the National Science Foundation's effort to build a national at scale facility that will support research on "clean slate" designs and architectures for future global communications networks. Wireless technologies are viewed as one of the main drivers of the future networks and as such play a prominent role in GENI. In this talk we will present a brief overview of wireless related design and prototyping efforts in GENI and discuss in more detail two projects:


  • WiMAX Meso-Scale Deployments: "GENI-enabled" WiMAX technology is currently deployed across eight university campuses. The goal is to create a mobile networking playground that will span the country, and provide experimental services to a large number of users using commercially available equipment under realistic environmental conditions. The vitualized WiMAX infrastructure

  • CR-GENI: The scope of this project is to develop a set of "ruggedized", expandable and configurable and fully programmable (cognitive) radio systems that will facilitate experimentation by GENI researchers who have only limited experience with hardware development tools.

The talk will conclude with a brief introduction of key challenges that these two projects bring to GENI infrastructure.
