    3939=== Higher Layer Tunneling ===
    40 Experimenters without layer 2 data connections to GENI can use tunneling such as GRE to interoperate with each other and with layer 2 experimenters.  OpenVPN software is also used in GENI to manage connections across diverse networks.

    4444A given campus may wish to use local VLAN translation in order to give experimenters access from campus resources to inter-campus GENI networks, or to allow experimenters to use network research technologies such as OpenFlow.
    45  * OpenFlow/CampusTopology: topology options to allow experimenters flexible and/or OpenFlow-controlled access to GENI networks In figure 2, the switch represents an edge OpenFlow switch translating the experimental VLAN (used inside the experiemental cloud) into the the campus's VLAN (outside of the experimental cloud).
