GENI, we be of one blood

12
November 2009

“We
should complete the
development
of proposals
to establish in Russia a
powerful research and
development center that
would focus on the support
of all areas
.”

“An
attractive environment for the work of leading scientists, engineers,
designers, programmers, managers and financiers would be formed there.
In addition, new competitive technologies in the global market would be
created
there”

SKOLKOVO Mission

Priorities

ARCCN Mission
:



to develop and distribute Software Defined Networking tools and technologies



to
create
SDN deployments in R&E networks for the benefit of the larger R&E

community



to allow researchers to seamlessly transition SDN network control and management concepts from


prototype to emulation to deployments in local and even national test beds

ARCCN is a member of
SKOLKOVO project

(IT cluster)

(Education)

University Consortium

Main goals
:


To promote the SDN segment deploying in the scientific
and educational environment of Russia;


To form SDN research community at Russian universities
in collaboration with branch ministries, enterprises and
development institutions.

Main tools:


To create SDN
-
network segments in the Russian Universities


To include SDN courses in the compulsory syllabuses in
universities, project partners;


To lay down relevant topics for
Ph.D

studies;


To provide opportunity for Science Experiment with real
equipment.

configuration tools.


SDN networks management: tools for describing network resources,
their abstraction and
implementation
,
networking
and distributed
resources virtualization .


The use of SDN technology in various application areas: Data Center,
Storage Area Network (SAN), corporate networks, network operators
and service providers, wireless
networks, home networks,
informational
security.


Demonstrate the capabilities and benefits of using SDN technology to
manage modern computer networks.
