The Internet2 networking consortium, Indiana University, and Stanford University’s Clean Slate Program have launched a research center that will create a new network platform for global scientific research.
The Network Development and Deployment Initiative (NDDI) will create multiple virtual networks that allow network researchers to test and experiment with new Internet protocols and architectures. It will also enable domain scientists to accelerate their active research with collaborators worldwide.
