Internet No Good, We’re Starting Over

The Global Environment for Network Innovations (GENI) project is a research project that investigates alternative network infrastructure designs.

This is not Internet2. This is a more radical departure from established network designs, a bold experiment in seeing what is possible.

Some people might wonder what the point is. Sure, we’re about to run out of IP addresses, but IPv6 will solve that problem for us. We’ve been using TCP/IP for almost 40 years. It’s established technology. Why start over?

Because they have the technology. They can rebuild it. Better than it was before. Better, stronger, faster. And this time they’ve got $12 million to do it with.
