PROJECT ACTIVITIES

The FEDERICA infrastructure is based on Gigabit Ethernet circuits, network nodes and computer systems supporting V-Nodes from the participating NRENs. One of the initial goals was to make the core part of the network operational by October 2008. This was achieved.

The development of the infrastructure is following three phases. In the first phase the users could request virtual networks with complete control up to the network layer, but with fixed Ethernet framing. In the second phase, started in October 2008 and lasting until December 2009 the users could request virtual networks with complete control up to the network layer, but with fixed Ethernet framing. In the following phase, according to users’ requests and infrastructure capabilities, the user control may extend down to lower layers.

The user can request a virtual network composed by (virtual) circuits and (virtual) nodes for experimentation. Each virtual network is a "slice" of the infrastructure and many slides can be active in parallel and independently. Access to the infrastructure is normally free of charge, subject to compliance with an Acceptable User Policy. A User Policy Board is responsible for accepting and prioritizing users’ requests. Each user group is assured testing privacy and their results will not accessible by other users. The FEDERICA project requests explicit feedback from its users.

The FEDERICA project has three categories of activity:
