The Global Environment for Network Innovations (GENI) is a suite of network research infrastructure now in its design and prototyping phase. It is sponsored by the National Science Foundation to support experimental research in network science and engineering. The GENI suite will support a wide range of experimental protocols, and data dissemination techniques running over facilities such as fiber optics with next-generation optical switches, novel high-speed routers, city-wide experimental urban radio networks, high-end computational clusters, and sensor grids. The GENI suite will be shared among a large number of individual, simultaneous experiments with extensive instrumentation that makes it easy to collect, analyze, and share real measurements.
