Internet2, Indiana University and Stanford University have announced the Network Development and Deployment Initiative (NDDI). The partnership will create a network platform and software to support global scientific research, and produce a revolutionary Internet2 Network service called the Open Science, Scholarship and Services Exchange (OS3E). Built using the first production deployment of OpenFlow technology, the service will link with international partners to deliver a global "software-defined network."
Internet2, Indiana University and the Clean Slate Program at Stanford University have announced the Network Development and Deployment Initiative (NDDI). The partnership will create a new network platform and complementary software to support global scientific research and will produce a revolutionary new Internet2 Network service called the Open Science, Scholarship and Services Exchange (OS3E). The service will be built using the first production deployment of OpenFlow technology, and link with international partners to deliver a global "software-defined network." The OS3E infrastructure will support multiple virtual networks, allowing network 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 provided by NDDI and OS3E deliver an unprecedented platform to support diverse 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 like the National Science Foundation’s GENI project and Princeton University's PlanetLab.
