US Ignite at NSF

NSF will serve as the lead federal agency for a White House Initiative called US Ignite, which aims to promote U.S. leadership in the development and deployment of next-generation applications and services with societal impact on ultra-fast, programmable networks. NSF will expand and leverage its investments in the Global Environment for Networking Innovation (GENI) project. GENI, a programmable virtual laboratory or testbed for Internet-scale networking experimentation, sets the technical groundwork for US Ignite. NSF is also encouraging the development of novel, next-generation applications and services that take advantage of these advanced testbeds and have potential for significant societal impact: see the Dear Colleague Letter (http://www.nsf.gov/publications/pub_summ.jsp?ods_key=nsf12085) and Mozilla Ignite (https://mozillaignite.org) for more information.
