Adaptive Programmable Research Infrastructure for Computer Science and Science Applications

This map shows the anticipated FABRIC topology.

ESnet is a key partner the novel network research infrastructure called FABRIC. The National Science Foundation (NSF) collaboration is building a national research infrastructure that will enable the computer science and networking community to develop and test novel architectures that could yield a faster, more secure Internet. The four-year, $20 million project is intended to support exploratory research, at scale, in computer networking, distributed computing systems, and next-generation applications. The project was chosen following an extremely competitive process and is funded through a new initiative, Mid-Scale Research Infrastructure, one of NSF’s 10 Big Ideas. ESnet Director Inder Monga is a co-P.I. in the effort.
