The FABRIC Testbed
October 21 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Speaker: Jim Griffoen – Professor and Director, University of Kentucky Center for Computational Sciences
FABRIC is a unique national research infrastructure to enable cutting-edge and exploratory research at-scale in networking, cybersecurity, distributed computing and storage systems, machine learning, and science applications. FABRIC is an everywhere programmable nationwide instrument comprised of novel extensible network elements equipped with large amounts of compute and storage, interconnected by high speed, dedicated optical links. It will connect a number of specialized testbeds (5G/IoT PAWR, NSF Clouds) and high-performance computing facilities to create a rich fabric for a wide variety of experimental activities.
Jim Griffoen is Professor of Computer Science, Director of the Center for Computational Sciences, and Director of the Laboratory for Advanced Networking at the University of Kentucky. his research interests include future network architectures, cloud computing, programmable networks/software defined networks, network measurement and monitoring systems, experimental testbed networks, network virtualization, and network protocol design.
