     9'''__Milestone 1: Review all Substrate Technologies.__'''
     10The objective of this milestone is to document the review of all (optical, wireless, edge compute, etc.) substrate technologies (list provided by GPO) in spiral-1 from a measurement and monitoring point of view based on the current version of GENI’s “Spiral 1 substrate catalog” [geni09_1]. Some prototype information has not been posted yet. Data plane measurements can be classified as embedded and external measurements that are required to monitor the physical layer characteristics on GENI. Therefore, all substrate technologies need to be examined to determine their embedded measurement capabilities in addition to the data plane measurements that prototypes offer. This milestone outlines these substrate technologies as they have been made available by the Spiral-1 prototypes. The embedded measurement capabilities for the substrate technologies are documented in “Embedded Measurements in substrate technologies” document [geni09_2]. Depending on needs assessment with control framework and real-time measurement capabilities, external measurement equipments will be investigated.

     12'''__Milestone 2: Document Embedded Measurement Capabilities__'''
     13The purpose of this milestone is to document embedded measurements capabilities of all substrate technologies. The embedded measurements capabilities of all substrate technologies is documented based on the current version (GENI-INF-PRO-S1-CAT-01.5) of GENI’s “Spiral 1 substrate catalog” [geni09_1], as well as on information from equipment vendors and the internet. Embedded measurements are readily accessible measurements on network nodes. Remote connectivity and access capabilities of these measurements are very important for a GENI researcher.

     26'''1. Review all Substrate Technologies'''[[BR]] Review all substrate technologies milestone is achieved and the deliverable has been made to GENI. The objective of this milestone is to document the review of all (optical, wireless, edge compute, etc.) substrate technologies (list provided by GPO) in spiral-1 from a measurement and monitoring point of view based on the current version of GENI’s “Spiral 1 substrate catalog” [geni09_1]. The embedded measurement capabilities for the substrate technologies are documented in “Embedded Measurements in substrate technologies” document [geni09_2]. Depending on needs assessment with control framework and real-time measurement capabilities, external measurement equipments[[BR]]
     27'''2. Document Embedded Measurement Capabilities'''[[BR]] Document Embedded Measurement capabilities milestone is achieved and the deliverable has been made to GENI. The embedded measurements capabilities of all substrate technologies is documented based on the current version (GENI-INF-PRO-S1-CAT-01.5) of GENI’s “Spiral 1 substrate catalog” [geni09_1], as well as on information from equipment vendors and the internet. Embedded measurements are readily accessible measurements on network nodes.[[BR]]
     28'''3. Identify External Measurement Equipment'''[[BR]] This is our future milestone which is due May 30th 2009. The purpose of this milestone is to identify and document external measurements equipment (if any) and recommend where external measurement devices could benefit spiral-1.This milestone will document the possible external measurements equipments based on GENI’s “Spiral 1 substrate catalog” [geni09_1], as well as on information from equipment vendors and the internet.
