What will the high speed networks of the future look like? This week RENCI at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill and Duke University announced a collaboration with IBM to build a nationwide test bed for next-gen networks. As part of the National Science Foundation’s GENI initiative, the project will deploy and operate 13 ExoGENI sites at research universities and labs across the U.S.
Future computer science and applied research must bring together computation, storage and network capabilities on a global scale to address emerging complex problems related to network science, large-scale distributed computations, large dataset mobility and future network architectures,” said Baldine. “With ExoGENI researchers will gain a global, elastic reconfigurable platform to conduct such research.”
