Priority: major Milestone: ViSE: S1.g Contingent upon available budget, provide a VLAN connection from your testbed to the Internet2

From 2Q09 QSR on 6/30/09:

We had multiple phone meetings between the GENI project office and Rick Tuthill of UMass-Amherst OIT. As a result of these conversations, we believe it is possible to get a VLAN connection from to an Internet2 backbone site in Boston by October 1st, 2009. This VLAN connection would be used by both DOME and ViSE. We are currently working through this process. Ilia Baldine of the Orca project also introduced us to John Volbrecht of Internet2. John is interested in having a demo of ORCA using I2 as a transit provider (using I2’s DCN capability). We will be coordinating with John as we bring our Internet2 connection online.

Per 3Q09 status report:

In cooperation with OIT at UMass-Amherst we have provided a VLAN connection from our control plane server to an Internet2 point-of-presence in Boston. In an email dated September 28th, 2009 Rick Tuthill of UMass-Amherst OIT updated us on the status of this connection, as follows. ”I was down at the CS building finishing this link setup on Friday – I think there may have been some confusion in the network jack ordering as there are only two network ports currently activated. The two existing ports that are ’live’ are room 218A jack 2-2-4D and room 226 jack 2-2-9D. These two ports and all intermediary equipment are now configured to provide layer-2 VLAN transport from these networks jacks to the UMass/Northern Crossroads(NoX) handoff at 300 Bent St in Cambridge, MA. The NoX folks are not doing anything with this research VLAN at this time. They need further guidance from GENI on exactly what they’re supposed to do with the VLAN. Also, once IP addressing is clarified for this VLAN, we’ll need to configure some OIT network equipment to allow the selected address range(s) to pass through. I have signed the MOU and will return a countersigned ’original’ to Brian Levine....Let me know if there’s anything I can do to facilitate testing of this link in the next couple of days.” We intend this VLAN connection to service both the ViSE and the DOME testbeds. Thus, as required by this milestone, we have coordinated with OIT at UMass-Amherst to provide a VLAN connection from our testbed to the Internet2 backbone network. In the coming year, we have committed to planning with our peers in Cluster D and the GPO on how to best use this new capability. As part of this plan, and before we can send/receive traffic on this link, we will discuss the roles and capabilities of Internet2 in forwarding our traffic to its correct destination. Attached is the signed Memorandum-of-Understanding (MOU) between UMass-Amherst OIT and the DOME/ViSE projects with respect to our use of this VLAN connection. As discussed in the MOU, OIT is providing the link free of charge for the first year for prototyping purposes, but charge a fee in subsequent years based on our usage.
