SC22 Demo Shows Record Performance for NDN-based Data Delivery Platform

The NSF-supported multi-university N-DISE (NDN for Data-Intensive Science Experiments) project, led by ECE Professor Edmund Yeh, has finished a highly successful demo at SC22 in Dallas.  The Northeastern-Caltech-UCLA-Tennessee Tech team demonstrated a record average throughput of 50 Gbps and peak throughput of 63 Gbps for the N-DISE data delivery platform on a transcontinental wide area network testbed. The team also demonstrated (1) the superior performance of the N-DISE joint caching and forwarding algorithm, (2) a transparent integration of NDN with high energy physics CMS software components, (3) FPGA acceleration of the NDN-DPDK forwarder, and (4) an integration of content names with Kubernetes clusters using NDN for genomics workflows. Please see for further details.

The N-DISE project ( aims to accelerate the pace of breakthroughs and innovations in data-intensive science fields such as the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) high energy physics program and the BioGenome and human genome projects. Based on Named Data Networking (NDN), a data-centric future Internet architecture, N-DISE will deploy and commission a highly efficient and field-tested petascale data distribution, caching, access and analysis system serving major science programs.
