October 28, 2009: GENI Goes Global

October 28, 2009 -- A Consortium of network researchers announced this week that they received a three-year grant from the U.S. Global Environment for Network Innovations (GENI) program to develop a major new national and international distributed infrastructure called "iGENI," the "International GENI." GENI is an open and broadly inclusive research initiative established by National Science Foundation (NSF) to provide a virtual laboratory for exploring future internets at scale. It creates major opportunities for academia, industry and the public to understand, innovate and transform networks and their interactions for the benefit of society in the 21st-century. iGENI makes GENI truly global. Led by the International Center for Advanced Internet Research at Northwestern University, the consortium includes the Electronic Visualization Laboratory (EVL) at the University of Illinois at Chicago; Calit2 at the University of California, San Diego; Cisco Systems, Inc.; and, the BBN Technologies GENI Program Office. This project is funded by NSF through BBN Technologies to enable research at the frontiers of network science and engineering. EVL, in particular, will assist with documentation and with network engineering at the StarLight global communications facility in downtown Chicago.
