The Internet2 NOC is scheduled to install an HP 3500 into Atlanta on 15-Sep-2010. This should have ION access, IP access, and a 10GE LR to connect to NLR's Atlanta OpenFlow switch.

We have allocated the fiber pair to connect to NLR. It will run from our PoP, to another PoP in Atlanta where both SLR and NLR are located; the fiber runs to the SLR suite.

Unfortunately, the fiber pairs between Internet2 and SLR are not well labeled. So, the first step is to connect the 10GE LR optics to the fiber pair.

Later, SLR will use exhaustive search to find which of our pairs is the new lit one, and then cross-connect it to a bulk fiber in the NLR suite.
