Florida International University (FIU) and the Georgia Institute of Technology (GT) are implementing AtlanticWave-SDX: a distributed experimental Software-Defined Exchange (SDX), supporting research, experimental deployments, prototyping and interoperability testing, on national and international scales. A Software-Defined Exchange (SDX) will provide a capability to prototype an OpenFlow network where members of each Internet peering fabric could exchange traffic based in different layers of abstraction.

AtlanticWave-SDX as it presents a great opportunity for our global research & education community to take advantage of our new capacity to collaborate on vital next-generation network research and application development.
Software-driven strategic load balancing and flow moderation across a global set of SDXs are an essential part of the emerging picture of the next generation of intelligent networks. This will help physicists throughout the world to realize the potential for a new round of discoveries that may emerge during the higher energy data-taking round that is about to begin at the LHC, and pave the way for other major science programs, such as LSST.
