Scope

This project will deploy an OpenFlow testbed between two campuses. This trial will conduct OpenFlow experimentation focused on OpenFlow enabled dynamic provisioning and distributed monitoring as a precursor to deployment into the Indiana University campus production network. It will also examine and propose ways for network operators to manage and support their networks using Openflow enabled devices.

Current Capabilities

Initial small deployment in three locations

  • Three OpenFlow VLANs (400 and 401 for testlab traffic, 3041 for production traffic)
  • Seven OpenFlow switches over 2 Campuses (HP)
  • FlowVisor, SNAC, and NOX controllers
  • Engineer workstations and testnet PCs
  • Simple Nagios checks for measurement
  • Simple integration with GpENI
  • Connectivity to NLR OpenFlow backbone
