    130130Layer 3 Connectivity:  IP access will be through UMass Amherst's campus network, using their public IP addresses.
    131131
    132 Layer 2 Connectivity:  An [http://groups.geni.net/geni/attachment/wiki/DOME/mou.pdf MOU] was agreed upon with the UMass Office of Information Technology (OIT) regarding connecting Internet2 to the DOME and ViSE servers, along with
     132Layer 2 Connectivity:  In cooperation with OIT at UMass-Amherst we have provided a VLAN connection from our control plane server geni.cs.umass.edu to an Internet2 point-of-presence in Boston. An [http://groups.geni.net/geni/attachment/wiki/DOME/mou.pdf MOU] was agreed upon with the UMass Office of Information Technology (OIT) regarding connecting Internet2 to the DOME and ViSE servers, along with
    133133VLAN access.  The OIT contact is Rick Tuthill,  tuthill email at oit.umass.edu.  The agreements include:[[BR]]
    1341341)  CS shall order OIT-provisioned network jacks in appropriate locations in the Computer Science building using normal OIT processes.  (completed) [[BR]]
     
    1361363)  OIT agrees to provide a single VLAN for “proof-of-concept” testing and initial GENI research activities.  [[BR]]
    1371374)  The interconnection of the provided VLAN between the NoX termination point and other Internet2 locations remains strictly the province of the CS researchers and the GENI organization.[[BR]]
    138 5)  This service shall be provided by OIT at no charge to CS for the term of one year in the interest of OIT learning more about effectively supporting network-related research efforts on campus.[[BR]]
     1385)  This service shall be provided by OIT at no charge to CS for the term of one year in the interest of OIT learning more about effectively supporting network-related research efforts on campus. [[BR]]

    140 Note that Layer 2 ethernets will not extend to the DieselNet nodes, due to limitations in the existing deployed systems, but IP tunnels to the layer 2 VLAN termination points should be feasible for connecting mobile endpoints to the GENI virtual ethernets.[[BR]]
    141 [[BR]]
     140In an email dated September 28th, 2009 Rick Tuthill of UMass-Amherst OIT updated us on the status of this connection, as follows:[[BR]]
     1416)  The two existing ports at the CS building in room 218A  and room 226  and all intermediary equipment are now configured to provide layer-2 VLAN transport from these networks jacks to the UMass/Northern Crossroads(NoX) handoff at 300 Bent
     142St in Cambridge, MA. [[BR]]
     1437)  The NoX folks are not doing anything with this research VLAN at this time. They need further guidance from GENI on exactly what they’re supposed to do with the VLAN. [[BR]]
     1448)  Also, once IP addressing is clarified for this VLAN, we’ll need to configure some OIT network equipment to allow the selected address range(s) to pass through. [[BR]]
    142145
     146We intend this VLAN connection to service both the ViSE and the DOME testbeds.  Note that Layer 2 ethernets will not extend to the DieselNet nodes, due to limitations in the existing deployed systems, but IP tunnels to the layer 2 VLAN termination points should be feasible for connecting mobile endpoints to the GENI virtual ethernets.[[BR]]

     148In the coming year, we have committed to planning with our peers in Cluster D and the GPO on how to best use this new capability. As part of this plan, and before we can send/receive traffic on this link, we will discuss the roles and capabilities of Internet2 in forwarding our traffic to its correct destination. [[BR]]
