Project Title

COTN: the California OpenFlow Testbed Network (CENIC)

Technical Contacts

PI: David Reese, Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California (CENIC),

Participating Organizations

Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California (CENIC)

GPO Liaison System Engineer

GPO System Engineer: Heidi Dempsey


This project will deploy an OpenFlow substrate in the California region to enable OpenFlow access to at least 15 campuses and 5 named multi-campus experiments. CENIC will integrate the new deployments with existing NLR and Internet2 OpenFlow deployments and the GENI control framework, and provide GENI aggregate operations and user support. The California Openflow Testbed (COTN) deployments will be fully compliant with GENI software standards for GENI aggregates, as published at GENI Engineering Conferences. The sites will use one or more GENI Aggregate Managers controlling access to the aggregate resources. The sites will also support GENI experimenter access. The sites will support shared GENI monitoring and operations procedures and interfaces for the meso-scale infrastructure as published at GENI Engineering Conferences.
