Australia's AARNet launches SDN testbed for researchers, universities

Australia's Academic and Research Network (AARNet) has formed a software-defined networking (SDN) testbed that will link researchers in nine universities with a data hub so that they can run experiments and collaborate on infrastructure that simulates the Internet. The universities will have SDN gear installed on site and then connect to a central hub that is made up of switches in Sydney, Adelaide, Perth and Seattle. This will let researchers send traffic over intercontinental distances.  Article
