Description

This would remove the HP 3500 currently installed in Atlanta, and replace it with a new NEC switch.

Current target: 4-Oct-2010

Depends on arrival of NEC switches (ordered, 30 day lead time) and current usage of the HP Atlanta switch.

After the switches arrive, we'll re-evaluate and see if we want to take the risk in changing the switch in Atlanta from HP to NEC before GEC9.

HP 3500 is currently installed in ATlanta, but not yet released for GENI use. Plan is for John Williams to coordinate testing with an Internet2 GENI ION site (e.g. Rutgers, BBN, Kansas) once Chris Small "releases" the switch and we have a working ION connection available from somewhere to use. Dale Finkelson of I2 is working on the ION connections. No date projected for ION yet.

We will not be changing this switch to an NEC switch before GEC9. We are planning to use cross-connects between NLR and I2 for 3 VLANs in the GEC9 demos, and are currently working with Chris Small to test end-to-end with ION/Sherpa.

The HP 3500 switch can be reached via a newly created ION endpoint:
