Géant OpenFlow Slice Contest

Under the slogan “Will you be one of the first to test out the new GÉANT OpenFlow Facility? – Here’s your chance to try it out for free!”, Géant3 project and the Géant infrastructure allow you to participate in a contest for original ideas willing to test the recently deployed Géant OpenFlow Facility. The prize is a full-month access grant for free!! You will be able to run your experiment at no cost, on a cutting edge infrastructure that runs on top of a very high capacity transport network and is spreaded along Europe.

If you wish to take part on the contest, don’t hesitat and hurry up to submit your application. Further information is available at: http://www.geant.net/Pages/openflow_competition.aspx

At DANA, we are happy to announce our contribution to the deployment of the facility: we have adapted the OpenFlow Control Framework that we developed under FP7 OFELIA project in the novel Géant OpenFlow Control Framework, which is being unsed to create the experimenters’ environment for the facility.

Don’t miss this opportunity to test this groundbreaking facility and the technology that powers it!
