> Session - What is behind? - Experimenting with the network

This session will present three experimental infrastructures for trialling new networking technologies. These employ virtualisation techniques allowing network resources to be allocated amongst multiple users, whilst granting each user varying degrees of control over their resources. They aim to be 'technology-agnostic' and to allow disruptive testing to be undertaken without affecting other users on the network.

> The MANTICORE Project: Providing Users with a Logical IP Network Service

The MANTICORE Project is being carried out by HEAnet, the i2CAT Foundation, NORDUnet, RedIRIS and Juniper Networks. The main goal of MANTICORE is to support the virtualization of physical as well as logical routers and to create an innovative service that provides the Network Operations Center and end users with the ability to customize the configuration of its own dedicated IP physical and/or logical network. The MANTICORE Software Architecture is built on top of the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Framework, a generalized approach to the outcome of years of research under the UCLP Research programs.

> Infrastructure for new Internet research: the FEDERICA project

FEDERICA is a Research Infrastructure EC project started 1/1/2008 and ending 1/7/2010. It aims at creating a scalable, European wide “technology agnostic” multidomain infrastructure, made of computing systems and circuits resources, capable of virtualization, based on the NREN/GÈANT2 networks, to support experimental activities on new Internet architectures and protocols. The consortium comprises national research and education networks, universities, research centres and equipment vendors. The infrastructure is composed initially by Gigabit Ethernet circuits, network nodes and computer systems supporting virtual nodes. The user can request a virtual network (a “slice”) composed by (virtual) circuits and (virtual) nodes for experimentation.

> VINI and its future directions

VINI is a wide-area virtual network infrastructure that allows network researchers to evaluate their protocols and services in a realistic environment while maintaining a high degree of control over network conditions. VINI spans 14 sites in the Internet2 and National Lambda Rail networks in the US and a site in the Czech Republic. VINI is an offshoot of PlanetLab, a planetary-scale testbed for overlay applications. This talk will focus on (1) plans for developing the VINI software and infrastructure; (2) "federating" VINI with other existing testbeds such as PlanetLab, OneLab, and Emulab; and (3) a view of how VINI fits into the NSF-sponsored GENI initiative in the United States.
