ESnet is pleased to announce that the Advanced Networking Initiative (ANI) testbed will be upgraded to include a 2200 mile 100 Gbps segment by the end of this year. This will make it the world’s first long-distance 100 Gbps testbed, available to any network researcher, whether from government, university, or industry. But take note: the next round of proposals to use the ANI Testbed is due on October 1– just 3 weeks away, so submit your ideas soon to take advantage of this great resource.
There has been a lot of exciting work on the testbed recently, including 40 Gbps RDMA testing, detailed power monitoring experiments, high-performance middleware testing, Openflow testing, and more. We also have some projects planning some interesting TCP research as soon as the 100 Gbps network is available.
