Abstract

Large research programs have been launched to address both the development of Future Internet architectures as well as suitable experimental facilities for testing. Recent research activities on experimental facilities try to share resources across organizational boundaries. This paper introduces an international cooperation effort on interconnecting network substrates of two Future Internet testbed projects, FIRST@PC (Future Internet Research on Sustainable Testbed based on PC) in Korea and ORCA-BEN in United States. To build a collaborative research infrastructure available to each other, we first present how to interconnect two network substrates. We then present how we support experiments on the interconnected network substrate and show the demonstration result performed on it.
