MANFRED GEC4 demo: initial integration of dynamic circuits into the GENI substrate

Keywords: GEC4 demo MANFRED Cc:


In our demonstration for GEC4, MANFRED will demonstrate initial integration of Cluster B's GENIwrapper (on a private PlanetLab central deployment) with dynamic circuits provisioned using the DRAGON software connecting PlanetLab slivers to each other as well as connecting to non-PlanetLab hosts.

We will demonstrate the capability to schedule/provision a high-speed dedicated circuit (may be between 1-1000Mbps with 1Mbps granularity) which will terminate as a tagged Ethernet 802.1Q VLAN on end hosts either running the PlanetLab MyPLC software or running as a standalone server.

An initial sketch of what this demo will look like (from an application topology perspective) is attached as a PDF. Please note that the exact details may vary slightly -- this diagram is meant to illustrate the overall concept. The actual topology and parameters of the dynamic circuits can vary depending on the requirements.

Our demonstration has the following requirements at the GEC4 venue in Miami:

  • 2 AC outlets for laptops
  • enough table space for two laptops
  • enough board space for our poster - 36" x 48" (portrait orientation)
  • wired Internet connection
  • two static IP addresses
  • projector / projector screen space (for projecting the demo)

If we need to share the projector with another group, a KVM switch would be helpful in transitioning between demos.

Thanks for the description and drawing. Following up with site contacts.

Requests confirmed. Static addresses will be via NAT.

Projectors will be rented and fairly expensive (but not shared), so if you have a portable projector you can bring, please let me know.

comment:4 Changed 15 years ago by

We are planning to bring our own portable projector.

Regarding the NAT setup -- will connections to any destination ports be blocked? We often use non-standard ports for services such as SSH. If connections via the NAT are going to be limited to well-known ports (80, 443, etc), please let us know.

Double checking with IT staff on blocked ports. No restrictions currently known.
