Aether is the foundational platform for the $30M DARPA Pronto project.
Project Pronto is building and deploying a beta-production
end-to-end 5G connected edge cloud leveraging a fully
programmable network empowered with unprecedented visibility,
verification and closed-loop control capabilities to fuel innovation and
secure future network infrastructure.

Cornell, Princeton and Stanford are funded to pursue the Pronto
research on network verification and closed-loop control while ONF is
funded to build, enhance, deploy and operate an Aether network in
support of this research.
