CESNET activities in NGI projects
Expansion of the Internet brings many serious conceptual problems. There are estimations that Internet will have several trillions of devices in the future. Current Internet cannot accumulate all these systems without radical changes. The NSF is trying to speed up the research for new networking architectures. They came with the project GENI – Global Environment for network. Also EC starts to support research in this direction. There are several running projects which like PlanetLab, VINI, FEDERICA, etc. which are linked with future project. The CESNET is partner in all of them. I will show what CESNET is doing and how other partners can profit from this.
