GENI Integrated Measurement Framework

Project Participants

The project combines the efforts of research teams from North Carolina State University, Columbia University, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill/RENCI and University of Houston. The project will integrate outcomes from GENI ERM and NSF FIND SILO projects into a set of tools and provide example experiments in cross-layer network control using  BEN optical network testbed.

Project Goals

The development of an measurement function in GENI with a particular focus on physical (optical) layer measurements. The project outcomes will be integrated with the  ORCA control framework. The project is part of GENI  Cluster-D.
