Regional and Campus GENI


Many projects with different needs

http://groups.geni.net/geni/wiki/SpiralTwo

and /GEC8DemoSummary


A
ll projects eventually enable experiments
between researchers and infrastructure
spanning multiple locations (usually
campuses)


Most separate control, data, instrumentation
planes


Notable exceptions like Million Node GENI
(may not be exceptions in the long run)

http://groups.geni.net/geni/wiki/MillionNodeGENI


Network protocol experimentation makes
layer 2 connections important for many
projects


GENI campus connections in Spiral2 mostly
1Gbps, some 10Gbps, but will grow quickly.


About 75% of Quilt members already
support GENI projects. Role of regionals
expanding (e.g. GENI racks)

Internet2 and NLR installing 5 OpenFlow switches in
each backbone (HP ProCurve and possibly a second
vendor)



NLR 3
-
node backbone live for GEC8 demo


ProtoGENI installing additional nodes (2 or more) in
Internet2 and integrating prototype OpenFlow


GENI layer 2 data planes starting to appear across
backbones, regionals and campuses


ION, FrameNet and custom network engineering
"stitching" VLANs


ORCA, IGENI demonstrating dynamic VLANs at
GECs


NLR and I2 10Gpbs layer2 interconnect at
Atlanta


ShadowNet: installing 3 Juniper M7i routers for
measurements in I2 PoPs this year

enabled control plane


MAX supports sliced edge compute resources (myPLC) and network virtualization with a GENI
Aggregate Manager


Layer 2 Ethernet switches with dedicated 1 GbE and 10GbE connections


Layer 3 IP (management, control and general connectivity)



Programmable network hardware


NetFPGA card installed in rack mounted PC


o acts as OpenFlow switch, programmable router, packet generator, etc.


o offers advanced measurement capabilities

ProtoGENI and ORCA



ProtoGENI backbone (5 locations in I2)


Current nodes on 10 GE dedicated connections to
Infinera GENI wave


Moving to 1 GE ION links between nodes in August
(stay tuned)


Campuses access via IP, ION or dedicated layer2
(through regional)


ORCA clearinghouse uses NLR backbone
in Spiral 2


Campuses connect via FrameNet, iGENI, and
regional optical networks


Dynamic VLAN allocation


ORCA broker plans to eventually support many
mixed connection types

Deployment Roadmap

Clemson OpenFlow Example

Multiple layer 2 & 3 connections

VLAN 3711 connects BBN and Clemson via NLR, SoX and NoX.
