This page is deprecated please refer look at the GENI Aggregate page for an updated list of aggregates

The following are lists of aggregates available to GENI experimenters.

1 Backbone Networks

Network Description Network Map
Internet2 Internet2 provides the U.S. research and education community a dynamic hybrid optical and packet network. GENI experimenters have access to 1Gbps of dedicated bandwidth from Internet2. Experimenters may create their own topologies using Layer 2 VLANS. Internet2 Map
National LambdaRail (NLR) NLR provides the testbed for advanced research at over 280 universities and private and U.S. government laboratories. GENI experimenters have access to up to 30Gbps of non-dedicated bandwidth on NRL. Experimenters may create their own topologies using Layer 2 VLANS. NLR Map
GENI OpenFlow Core GENI network core is a set of OpenFlow-capable switches in NLR and Internet2. There are currently two standing VLANs (3715 and 3716) carried on ten switches in the core. Experimenters may use these standing VLANs within the GENI core network without having to coordinate with NLR or Internet2. Experimenters will however have to coordinate with their campus and/or regional networks to connect to the GENI core. The two standing VLANS in the network core also bridge between the Internet2 and NLR networks. Core VLAN 3715 Core VLAN 3716
