Internet2 SDN: Rob Vietzke, Internet2 Vice President, Network Services
This session will focus on the Network Development and Deployment Initiative (NDDI), a partnership to create a new network platform and complementary software, which together will support global scientific research in a revolutionary new way. The partnership has been formed by Internet2, the Clean Slate Program at Stanford and Indiana University, Built using the first production deployment of OpenFlow technology, NDDI will deliver a "software-defined network" (SDN), a common infrastructure that can create multiple virtual networks, allowing researchers to experiment with new Internet protocols and architectures, and at the same time enabling domain scientists to accelerate their research with collaborators worldwide. The new capabilities create an unprecedented platform of support for projects ranging from the global exchanges of massive datasets from the Large Hadron Collider, radio astronomy and climate modeling experiments, to large-scale network research initiatives.
