Convergence Innovation Competition

The Convergence Innovation Competition (CIC) is a bi-annual competition that encourages students to create innovative, viable products and experiences. The Fall CIC is campus-focused and the categories are determined by our campus partners. Meanwhile, the categories of the Spring CIC are determined by our industry partners.

GT Journey

GTJourney is an opportunity for all members of the Georgia Tech community to collaborate on applications and solutions that benefit the campus. It is a virtual focal point for students, faculty, and staff to develop ideas and solutions, find technical support and resources, advertise and access campus data, and share applications and experiences. GT Journey continues Georgia Tech's tradition of benefiting from the diverse expertise and interests of its students, faculty, staff and alumni.

Magic Window

Magic Window is an immersive live video experience. The users can change their perspective as if they are looking through a real window. The augmented video supports interaction with both live and pre-recorded media content through gesture-based controls, such as leaning sideways to see further to the side or leaning in to zoom. Current applications include viewing live demos remotely and games such as charades and taboo.

RPKI: Resource Public Key Infrastructure

GT-RNOC is working on an NSF funded project to evaluate deployment options for the Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) and develop best practices for the research networking community as a first step toward securing the Internet's routing infrastructure. This work includes designing and evaluating the architectures for managing Resource Certificates and Resource Origin Authorizations (ROAs). The work involves deploying RPKI across 21 university networks connected to the SoX regional network based in Atlanta, GA. As the system is deployed, researchers will need to watch the operation for several months to study route stability and determine best practices for further deployment across the Internet.

Campus GIS Initiative

A geographic information system (GIS) integrates hardware, software, and data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information. GT-RNOC's GIS is specifically designed with research and development in mind: Using ESRI's ArcGIS Server packages, inter-departmental ArcGIS development environments and a single campus production environment.

Campus Wireless Test Lab

RNOC works closely with the Georgia Tech Wireless team to test and deploy innovative new wireless technologies which will perform at scale and offer agile and accessible network access to the research community. Check back soon for details...

Direct to Discovery

The Direct-to-Discovery (D2D) program at Georgia Tech brings world-class researchers and their laboratories into K-12 classrooms. D2D enables teachers and researchers to collaborate in providing rich, up-to-date science content that inspires, motivates, and empowers experiential learning. The D2D program features three essential components: the underlying network infrastructure, the enabling technologies, and a collaborative professional development framework. Combining real-time, high definition videoconferencing and direct access to the high-speed global research and education network infrastructure with curriculum development expertise provides K-12 students with a unique, immersive learning experience.

Health IT and Healthcare Analytics

RNOC works in partnership with IPaT researchers and the Georgia Tech I3L to support platforms and services for use by student researchers in the Health IT interoperability, M-Health, and healthcare analytics areas.

Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) will soon touch nearly all of the interactions we have with our world and with the things around us, and the interaction of those things with each other. GT-RNOC is developing a number of IoT-related projects that help students demonstrate and better understand some of the complexity and range of applications that the IoT encompasses. We invite students and faculty alike to bring their fun or serious project ideas or to join in the development of one of our existing projects. Our hardware includes Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and ESP8266, combined with a wide variety of sensors, communicating over WiFi, Bluetooth, RFID, and others. Development opportunities exist in hardware hacking, mobile apps, back-end, wireless networking, system architecture, software/system security, and more. GT-RNOC is also currently working with GT Professional Education to develop course offerings in the topic and sub-topics of IoT, with class offerings expected to begin in 2016. We welcome other faculty and researchers who are interested in collaborating on these efforts to share the stories of their work in this arena.

Network Monitoring & Management

More info. coming soon. PINGER2 CPR:Campus Wide Network Performance Recovery & Monitoring BISMark


The Software Defined Exchange (SDX) applies the principles of Software Defined Networking to the Internet Exchange to overcome long standing limitations in inter-domain routing. The goal is to provide a rich set of options for specifying policy at the exchange point to describe how traffic is handled between network operators.
