The University of Houston was selected as one of only 11 participants
nationwide in the initial rollout of the Global Environment for Network
Innovations (GENI), a prestigious National Science Foundation
project that will profoundly influence the future of networking. Dr.
Deniz Gurkan, Associate Professor of Engineering Technology, coordinated
this effort with support from UH Associate VP of Information
Technology/Chief Information Officer Dennis Fouty and Cullen
Distinguished University Chair/TLC2
Director Lennart Johnsson. Dr. Johnsson's Research and Education
Network of Houston (RENoH) contributed the infrastructure that
distinguished UH from among myriad Tier One institutions in the highly
competitive selection process. The university's participation will
enable research innovations that shape the technical infrastructure of
future internets and their impact on society as a whole.
