Eric Boyd, Internet2, Over the past 25 years, the modern Internet evolved in labs and dorms at R&E-enabled campuses, leading to the creation of large and successful companies such as Cisco, Mosaic, Facebook, Google, and Box. The pervasive bandwidth-rich environment found on campuses incubated technology development and enabled the creation of large scale early adopter communities that evolved into the Internet-centered commercial markets that exist today. The R&E Community has opportunity to once again serve as the laboratory for Internet innovation, and Internet2 is investing heavily in the resources needed by the R&E community to begin that new era of innovation. By recreating the bandwidth advantage historically held by R&E institutions and opening the network software stack to innovation, Internet2 seeks to create a new bandwidth-rich, programmable network for science, scholarship and service. This talk will cover Internet2's investment in the Network Development and Deployment Initiative (NDDI) in partnership with Indiana University and the Clean Slate Program at Stanford University. It will give details on the new opportunities for network innovation at R&E campuses enabled by the NDDI substrate, such as the recently launched Open Science, Services, and Scholarship Exchange (OS3E). It will also talk about how this creates an environment to support both scientific research and network research in labs and dorm rooms across the country and around the globe.
