    54  * [SiteNlr NLR]'s web provisioning service ([SiteNlr#SherpaAccount Sherpa]), by default, does ''not'' provide VLAN translation; your campus, your partner campus, and all regional networks will need to provision ''the same VLAN ID'' to establish a connection.

    105105=== QinQ ===
    106 QinQ is a tunneling option which "wraps" your frames (marked with your VLAN ID) within another VLAN ID that is available within the regional network. For example, you provisioned VLAN 1234 to [SiteNlr NLR] from your network, but your regional is already using this VLAN ID. Your regional can assign you with another VLAN ID, say 2345, for this connection and tunnel VLAN ID 1234 through this connection so that you can reach [SiteNlr NLR] with your VLAN ID intact. Depending on the situation, your regional may do this transparently or your campus may need to be involved.

    110110=== VLAN Translation ===
    111 VLAN translation translates one VLAN ID to another allowing two separate VLAN ID's to coexist as if it was one VLAN topology.   For example, [wiki:SiteInternet2 Internet2's ION service] provides VLAN translation. This allows your campus to provision a VLAN ID through your campus and regional network to your ION endpoint without concern for your partner campus's VLAN provisioning. Your partner campus does the same. Once both campuses can reach their ION endpoints, the ION connection can be provisioned to translate your campus's and your partner campus's VLAN ID.
