GPO visits RENCI

The GENI Project Office (GPO) was formed at BBN Technologies in 2007 and has been charged with
identifying the infrastructure suite that could best support NetSE experiments.  The GPO has begun a
series of community-based planning and prototyping activities, notably Design and Prototyping
Solicitations #1 and #2.  The first set of selected prototypes will complete ìSpiral 1î at the end of one year, and
will attempt a first integration of a majority of necessary ingredients for a ìreal GENIî. 

Note that there is no pre-ordained outcome for these activities:  the resultant GENI infrastructure suite could be the existing
Internet, existing testbeds, federations of testbeds, something brand new (from small to large),
federation of all of the above, and perhaps a federation with related international efforts.
In this talk, we will present an overview of the GENI development effort, an introduction to the GENI
architecture, and a discussion of how interested researchers can get involved in shaping the facility.

Harry Mussman is a Senior Systems Engineer, one in a group of GENI Project Office systems engineers at BBN Technologies, responsible for supporting the GENI community through documentation and coordination.  Harry brought a strong background in network architecture and systems engineering to the GPO in early 2008.  Before joining BBN, he was Chief Voice-over-IP Architect at a startup, BridgePort Networks.   During the period from 1999 through 2002, he was responsible for Voice-over-IP network architecture at GTE Internetworking/Genuity.  Harry received his BSEE degree from the University of Michigan, his MSEE from Northwestern University and a PhD from Stanford University.
