Description

Layer 2 connectivity

WINLAB will connect layer 2 to MAGPI East in Philadelphia. Additional fiber infrastructure is needed; one piece has been acquired, one is in place, and a third is planned for completion June 30. Rutgers has an existing connecton to MAGPI East in Philadelphia. Connection to NLR or Internet2 TBD.

(Status on April 1: The missing fiber link between the Rutgers Food Science building and the Route 1 fiber corridor (~1 mile) will be provisioned by June 30. We will be creating a 1 Gig lambda for WINLAB in July to our current location at 401 Broad Street in Philadelphia on the 9th floor. From what we've heard to date, GENI is not using the 10Gig Wave, but is using the general Internet2 network; thus, we should be able to hand off directly to MAGPI in our current location. In the meantime, we are ready to test L2 connectivity using a VPN over the excess capacity of 400Mbps on Rutgers University's existing commodity feed to L2, if another testbed is available for connection.)

NICTA plans connection via Australian Advanced Research Network to a PoP in Seattle, with possible connectivity to Internet2 and NLR. Possible DCN for GENI virtual ethernet connection. Details TBD.

Per 2Q09 QSR:

Providing L2 connectivity to ORBIT The missing fiber link between the Rutgers Food Science building and the Route 1 fiber corridor (~1 mile) was installed and tested in early June. Unfortunately, due to manhole fire in Philadelphia, the Winlab 1 Gig lambda to MAGPI East (at 401 Broad Street) provisioning had to be postponed for early August. As for the next step, from what we've heard so far, GENI is not using the DCN 10Gig Wave yet, so we are planning to use direct handoff to Internet2 in our current location in Philly.

As an alternative, we created and successfully demonstrated L2 connectivity using overlay L2TP connection between WINLAB and NICTA, Australia over the existing Rutgers University's commodity feed to I2 shown in Figure 2. This link was used for a variety of testing scenarios, including a single experiment with a mixture of individual resources on both ends of the tunnel (with experiment coordination from both ends of the tunnel over multicast traffic), running an aggregate manager for the resource on the opposite end of the tunnel and measurement collection across endpoints.

Discussion on 10/20/09 with Ivan Seskar:

It was agreed that this milestone will be completed when L2 conenction is complete from Rutgers, through NJEdge, to I2 DCN, and then on to NICTA.

There is every expectation that this will be done in a few days.

From Year 1 report, and email received 3/4/10:

Support for wide‐area (L2) connectivity Early in the year, we worked with the NJEdge regional consortium to connect us to regional center MAGPI East (Philadelphia). As part of this process, we acquired dedicated fiber along the Route 1 corridor jointly with NJEdge. In the first half of the year the section of missing fiber link between the Rutgers Food Science building and the Route 1 fiber corridor (~1 mile) was installed and optical lambda service from NJEdge was provisioned. This created 1Gbps optical link between our current location (Rt. 1 Technology Center, North Brunswick NJ) and carrier hotel (MagPI East) at 401 Broad Street in Philly on the 9th floor. The ION connection was not provisioned due to missing cross connect between I2 and MagPI. To avoid delays for other dependant deliverables, we used L2 tunneling protocol (L2TP) over the excess capacity of 400Mbps on Rutgers University's existing commodity feed to emulate expected L2 connectivity and implement wide area networking. This link was used for a variety of testing scenarios, including a single experiment with a mixture of individual resources on both ends of the tunnel (with experiment coordination from both ends of the tunnel over multicast traffic), running an aggregate manager for the resource on the opposite end of the tunnel and measurement collection across endpoints. We have successfully conducted a GEC demo that utilised L2 wide area network link from the New Jersey based ORBIT testbed to testbed facilities at NICTA in Sydney, Australia.
