All Hail the Gladiators!


On Saturday, August 18th, the Gladiators - Ankitkumar Patel, Nidhiben Solanki, and Suhel Patel - won the top prize (Samsung Galaxy Tablet) in the AT&T Foundry, Juniper Networks, and UTD Hackathon in Plano. Their “congestion-aware rate controller” Junos Space application extracted relevant performance data from the network and dynamically throttled back an application directly based on attainment of certain pre-established performance thresholds. The Gladiators just edged out The Incredibles to grab the top spot.

The Certificates


The judges (AT&T, Juniper and local entrepreneurs) had a challenging time with the final rankings, but ultimately it came down to level of functionality offered with the respective team’s Space solution and their ability to effectively demonstrate the functionality to the gathered audience. Students worked against a multi-tiered bandwidth management solution against user specified applications.

The 2nd Place Team, The Incredibles – Meenakshi Balasubramanian, Lynne Hong, and Senthil Kumar Rajagopal – built an Intelligent Bandwidth Management Application called “iBand” which offered manual video delivery controls when streamed video was subjected to poor network performance.

The 3rd place finishers, The Avengers – Ameya Joshi, Vinh Tran, and Jared Smith - constructed a graphical traffic utilization reporting system leveraging Junos Space to extract, correlate, and present router port data.

Juniper would like to thank The AT&T Foundry staff and the UTD staff for working with us on the program. Thanks and congratulations to all of the students/participants in the competition! Nice job by everyone.
