Prototyping and Validating the GENI Control Framework

The scope of work on this project is to prototype the control framework that logically stitches GENI components and user-level services into a coherent system; integrates a representative set of components and autonomous organizations into a coherent, operational whole; integrates edge clusters, high-performance backbone nodes, enterprise-level nodes, and edge-sitting wireless nodes; and federates across multiple independently-controlled aggregates, including those managed by international and corporate partners. This effort will culminate in a running system that can be accessed by the network research community.
Specific development goals include creating and deploying component manager packages and clearinghouse packages; operating a prototype clearinghouse; making reference clearinghouse and component manager implementations available via download to GENI prototype developers to use in their own aggregate or campus infrastructures; providing limited integration and development support for those users so that reference implementations can be deployed at multiple GENI locations; and providing GENI user access to PlanetLab (1000 nodes, 500 sites).

Quarterly Status Reports
Spiral 1 Connectivity
The PlanetLab Clearinghouse will be reachable via IP at www.planet-lab.org (184.108.40.206). All PlanetLab nodes will be reachable via IP.
Several VINI nodes will be reachable via L2 VLANs. Nodes are at 11 Internet2 PoPs (Seattle, LA, SLC, KC, Houston, Chicago, Atlanta, DC, Philadelphia, Princeton, Prague) and 7 NLR PoPs (Seattle, LA, Houston, Chicago, Atlanta, DC, Philadelphia). Node configurations are here.
