Spiral 1 Project
The project started in 2008 with the Spiral 1 project
Spiral 2 project
GENI Spiral 2 is the second phase of exploratory rapid-prototyping that will begin to inform technical and operational plans for the envisioned GENI suite of research infrastructure. Spiral 2's primary goal is to begin moving towards continuous experimentation. Key development for this period include improved integration of GENI prototypes; architecture, tools, and services enabling experiment instrumentation, a movement towards interoperability across GENI prototypes, and improved approaches towards researcher identity management. All GENI projects are expected to orient their efforts to make progress towards these goals during this spiral.
This project extends the OMF (cOntrol and Management Framework) to design and implement a prototype of a GENI-compliant resource management, experiment control, and measurement framework, so that it can support experiments across heterogeneous testbed resources, with a specific focus on mobile testbeds. GENI control framework functions will be added to the OMF as they become defined. Support for mobile testbeds will include the handling of disconnection, and providing temporal and spatial control. Reference implementations of your GENI-compliant resource management, experiment control, and measurement framework will be provided to another wireless project, and its testbed will be integrated into your OMF environment as a federated testbed. Both testbeds will be connected to a GENI backbone network. More Info..
Spiral 3 project
GENI Spiral 3 is the third phase of exploratory rapid-prototyping that is defining GENI’s technical and operational plans. Spiral 3’s primary goal is on supporting experimenter use of GENI infrastructure, including growing the resources available for use and making them easier for experimenters to acquire, connect, and configure.
This project is aimed at the development, procurement and software support of a GENI-enabled WiMAX base station equipment kit for deployment on seven campuses. This is follow-on to the current Spiral 1 & 2 project on the prototyping and trial deployment of an open GENI WiMAX 802.16e base station. The project leverages a commercial 802.16e base station from NEC, replacing the standard WiMAX controller with an open GENI software implementation that supports virtualization and layer 2/3 programmability.More Info..
