  1. Brief demo description (Demo Participants: Seung-Jong Park and Cheng Cui)

Federating a Cyberinfrastructure of Reconfigurable Optical Networks (CRON) testbed with ProtoGENI: a CRON is a virtual high speed optical networking and computing testbed (funded by NSF) providing 10Gbps emulated networking and computing environments. This demo will showcase the automated configuration of 10Gbps networking environments and the federation among CRON and other ProtoGENI resources.

  1. Request two servers at other ProtoGENI sites(BBN and Utah) which have at least 1Gbps links connected to CRON testbed at LSU through Internet2 (ION service)

BBN is looking into what Emulab server we could allocate to Dr. Park

The 1 Gbps links would be via ION and the ProtoGENI backbone, I believe. I don't know whether we can allocate 1 Gbps to a single experiment, since that is the max speed I2 has allocated for all of the ProtoGENI backbone connections. It might be feasible to do a higher-speed ION connection directly from BBN to Utah. I will talk to Dr. Park to get more information.

Dr. Park: just to clarify, you are hoping for one Emulab host at each of BBN and Utah (2 hosts in total), correct?
