The Global Environment for Network Innovations (GENI) is a facility concept being explored[when?] by the United States computing community with support from the National Science Foundation. The goal of GENI is to enhance experimental research in computer networking and distributed systems, and to accelerate the transition of this research into products and services that will improve the economic competitiveness of the United States.[1]

GENI planning efforts are organized around several focus areas, including facility architecture, the backbone network, distributed services, wireless/mobile/sensor subnetworks, and research coordination amongst these.[2]
