Description

This project includes following two main software components

  1. TCS (Topology creation scripts):

These scripts will accept XML files describing virtual network configuration and create these virtual networks over shared substrate. We will use OpenVZ kernel to create the virtual nodes and Ethernet-over GRE (a custom GRE module) to connect these virtual nodes.

  1. BGP Multiplexer:

Virtual networks created as above will talk to BGP multiplexer over EGRE tunnels and get BGP updates from the Internet. This BGP multiplexer will be implemented using Quagga software router.

Demo will display the ability to create virtual network as per the given topology and instantaneous BGP updates in the virtual network that are recieved from the BGP Mux.

Our demo requires 4 machines, with roughly the following configuration

  1. aprox 100GB harddisk.
  2. 2GB RAM.
  3. a decent processor.
  4. 2 gigabit ethernet interfaces

One interface of all the four machines should be connected to each other over a gigabit switch forming a switched LAN. Second interface of these machines should have static IP address.

Collaborating with ProtoGENI.

Apart from this, we will require a decent (~17" or more) monitor to show our experiment running.

I'll follow up on these requests with site contacts. Recommend you pursue options for bringing the equipment in case we can't find suitable local machines.

We can provide a 21" monitor.

Scratch that. We can provide a 19" monitor.

Demo now planning to use remote Emulab. Yogesh Mundada writes:

Now I just need an Internet connection and 19" monitor. I will show the demo from my laptop on the monitor.
