Open Networking Foundation. GENI. GENI and IF-MAP Network Instrumentation and Measurement | IF-MAP. What if you were designing the Internet from scratch?
What capabilities would you build into it? How would the protocols work --- would you have chosen TCP/IP? The GENI project looks at all that and more, and takes a "clean-slate" approach to designing a next-generation network from scratch. The project uses IF-MAP to help design how instrumentation and measurement can better work over a network, based on research being done by Deniz Gurkan, Assistant Professor of Engineering at the University of Houston. GENI (short for Global Environment for Network Innovations) is sponsored by the National Science Foundation, and provides collaborative and exploratory environments for academia, industry and the public to find discoveries and innovation in emerging global networks.

Part 1- Guido (Intro) Part 2 - Nikhil (Aster*x : Load-balancing as a network primitive) Part 3- KK (Using all wireless networks around us) Part 4 - Guru (Conclusion) Tutorial. Welcome to the OpenFlow tutorial!
OpenFlow is an open interface for remotely controlling the forwarding tables in network switches, routers, and access points. Upon this low-level primitive, researchers can build networks with new high-level properties. For example, OpenFlow enables more secure default-off networks, wireless networks with smooth handoffs, scalable data center networks, host mobility, more energy-efficient networks and new wide-area networks – to name a few. This tutorial is your opportunity to gain hands-on experience with the platforms and debugging tools most useful for developing network control applications on OpenFlow. Innovate in your network!
