Internet2 Offers Cash Prizes for SDN Research Apps

Internet2, in conjunction with Juniper Networks, Ciena, and Brocade, is offering cash awards for winning open source, data movement, software-defined networking (SDN) enabled, end user applications, which benefit the research and education (R&E) community, implemented on the nation’s first open, national-scale SDN platform -- the Internet2 Network.

The new Internet2 Network is the first open, national-scale 100G network that employs SDN and OpenFlow standards. It includes equipment from Juniper Networks, Ciena, and Brocade.

“The new Internet2 Network can advance global research collaboration in previously unimaginable ways," said Rob Vietzke, vice president of Network Services, Internet2. “Leveraging our new 100G, SDN-enabled network, we're on the hunt for the most innovative applications that help to accelerate and transform discovery in big data sciences."
